The Hamilton Advertiser
is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Hamilton and more widely throughout South Lanarkshire
, including the towns of Bellshill, Motherwell, Wishaw, Carluke and Larkhall, as well as Strathaven and Lesmahagow to the south of the county.
It was established in 1856 by one W Naismith. It’s now published by Media Scotland (formerly Scottish & Universal Newspapers), a division of UK-wide newspaper publishers Trinity Mirror. The editorial offices remain in Hamilton, S&UN’s old headquarters, having survived a centralisation of most of Media Scotland’s operations at the offices of the Daily Record and Sunday Mail in Glasgow.
Besides the main edition, there’s also a local edition for the south of the circulation area: the Lanark & Carluke Advertiser.
A weekly freesheet companion, the Hamilton World, was suspended from the week ending 9 September 2011.
It comes out on Thursdays.
