It was published on Thursdays by the Gazette Media Company, part of Trinity Mirror (North East). It was one of a series of six Herald & Post titles published as local companion titles to the Middlesbrough-based Evening Gazette; it was created by being spun off from the Darlington & North Yorkshire Herald & Post in 2000.
It ceased publication in October 2008. It had no website of its own: its web presence was through the Gazette‘s gazettelive.co.uk website. (The North Yorkshire news pages have now been removed.)
