Launched in 1918
by Lord Beaverbrook (Canadian-British entrepreneur Max Aitken)
as the Sunday companion to the Daily Express
, the Sunday Express
is just like its weekday cousin – a fundamentally conservative tabloid newspaper, aiming at a prosperous, none too serious readership
It was known as the Express on Sunday for four years from 1996 to 2000, while the Daily Express was published under the title The Express.
There’s a separate edition for Scotland, the Scottish Sunday Express.
Since 2000 its publishing company, Express Newspapers, has been owned by Richard Desmond, who has a range of media interests – including celebrity magazine OK! and, controversially, pornographic TV channel Television X.
E-editions are available on the site by paid subscription, as are archives going back to 2000 (for registered users). It’s also available in several app formats including iPad and iPhone, Windows 8 and Android.
