All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Posts from the ‘National – heavyweights’ category

The heavyweight end of the UK press is well represented, with five national “quality” newspapers – nine if you count the Sunday editions separately.

Financial Times

Financial and economic daily broadsheet with an international reach, famously printed on salmon-pink newsprint


Concise quality tabloid sold to commuters and “readers and lapsed readers” lacking time to read a full-sized newspaper

The Independent

The newest of the quality dailies, set up in 1986 at arm’s length from the Government’s press lobby

The Times

The oldest British national daily, founded in 1785 as the Daily Universal Register and printed daily (except Sundays) since 1788
