It was founded in 1977. It’s published by Alpha Newspapers (owned by Lord Kilclooney, the former MP and Ulster Unionist deputy leader John Taylor) from editorial offices in Antrim.
It’s part of a two-title series together with the Ballymena Guardian. The two together are (so the website claims) the highest-selling local newspapers in the boroughs of Antrim and Ballymena, selling more than three times the combined opposition. Until recently they were both broadsheets.
It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition (by paid subscription) is also available online.
