The Dewsbury Reporter
(strapline: “A Dewsbury newspaper you can trust”) is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the West Yorkshire town of Dewsbury
, nearby towns and villages in the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees (including Batley, Cleckheaton and Liversedge) and in Ossett in the neighbouring City of Wakefield.
It was founded in 1858. It was still known as the Dewsbury Reporter and Heckmondwicke Reporter as recently as 1982, but assumed its present title in that year and has kept it since then, apart from a three-year spell from 1997 to 2000 when it was simply The Reporter.
It’s published by The Reporter Ltd, which is based in Wakefield and is a subsidiary of nationwide regional newspaper publishers Johnston Press. The editorial offices are in Dewsbury. A companion freesheet, the Reporter Extra, is published on Thursdays from the same offices.
There’s also a local sub-edition for the town of Mirfield, the Mirfield Reporter, which shares the same editorial offices but has its own website.
It comes out on Fridays.
