It was launched in April 2007. It was published by NCJ Media, part of the nationwide Trinity Mirror group, as a companion to their evening tabloid for the North East of England, the Evening Chronicle, whose offices it shared.
It was one of a series of seven Chronicle eXTRA newspapers. However, over the course of 2008 and 2009, most of the titles closed, leaving only the Chronicle eXTRA – Newcastle and the Chronicle eXTRA – Gateshead.
It came out on Wednesdays. Like the rest of the Chronicle eXTRA series, it had no website of its own; the link below is to the Evening Chronicle’s website.
