It was founded in 1881 as The Mirfield and Ravensthorpe Reporter and kept that title until 1969. After two years as the Mirfield Reporter & District News, it became simply the Mirfield Reporter in 1971 and has kept that title since then, apart from a three-year interlude as The Reporter from 1997 to 2000.
It’s published by The Reporter Ltd, which is based in Wakefield and is a subsidiary of the Yorkshire Weekly Newspaper Group – itself part of nationwide regional newspaper publishers Johnston Press.
The Reporter is a local edition of the Dewsbury Reporter; its editorial offices are collocated with its parent paper in Dewsbury. But it has its own separate website and social media presence.
It comes out on Fridays.
