The Carmarthen Journal is a weekly paid-for tabloid newspaper that covers the town and county of Carmarthen as a parallel edition of the Llanelli Star. The two papers cover the Gwendraeth Valley together, the Llanelli Star in the guise of its Gwendraeth Star sub-edition.
It was founded in 1810 as the Carmarthen Journal and South Wales Weekly Advertiser, becoming simply The Journal in 1887 and then settling on its present title in 1911. Like the Llanelli Star, it’s a tabloid. However, it’s published on Wednesdays rather than Thursdays.
It’s published by Swansea-based South West Wales Media Ltd, a division of the Daily Mail & General Trust‘s regional newspaper publishing division, Northcliffe Media.
It has several sub-editions:
- Gwendraeth Valley
- Teifi Valley
- Ammanford, Llandeilo & Llandovery
- Lampeter & Llandysul
- St Clears & Whitland
It has no website of its own; like Northcliffe’s other newspapers, it shares their thisissouthwales.co.uk website, which was formerly the newspapers’ website but is now a more general portal site for which the newspapers merely provide news stories.
