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

The Chronicle

The Chronicle is a daily newspaper for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, although it’s sold much more widely – throughout Tyneside and Wearside, as well as most of Northumberland, parts of County Durham and even into the Scottish Borders. It claims to be the region’s Number One newspaper.

It was founded in 1885 as a broadsheet, the Evening Chronicle, and remained one up until 1997, when it switched to tabloid format. Until a relaunch in April 2013 it had kept its original title throughout its existence, but it changed its title to reflect an earlier ongoing shift towards a morning publication schedule.

It’s published by NCJ Media, an arm of the Trinity Mirror publishing giant. It’s the evening sister paper of The Journal.

There are four editions:

  • Regionwide
  • Newcastle & Gateshead
  • North & Coast
  • Late Night Final

A series of associated weekly freesheets, the Chronicle eXTRA, ran to seven editions in its heyday but has now ceased publication altogether.
