It was apparently founded in 1972 as the Brackley News, a local edition of the Buckingham & Winslow Advertiser. (An earlier Brackley Advertiser ceased publication in that year; the two newspapers do not appear to be related.) Since then it’s undergone a number of title changes, becoming the Brackley Advertiser for just four weeks in March-April 1974 and then the Towcester & Brackley Advertiser until March 1981; it then spent three years as simply The Advertiser before settling on its present title in May 1984.
It’s part of an Advertiser & Review series of weekly tabloids sold in the North Bucks/NE Oxon/SW Northants area and published by Premier Newspapers, part of Johnston Press‘s South Midlands division. It shares a website and editorial offices in Buckingham with the Buckingham & Winslow Advertiser and the other title in the series, the Bicester Review.
It comes out on Fridays.
