Middlesbrough Herald & Post

The Middlesbrough Herald & Post is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in the town of Middlesbrough itself, as well as the villages to the south of the town as far out as Maltby, Newby and Nunthorpe.

The publishers are Gazette Media Company Ltd (part of the Trinity Mirror group), who also publish the paid-for daily tabloid the Evening Gazette and whose offices are in Middlesbrough.

It was launched in 1989 as a rebranding of the earlier Middlesbrough Advertiser, which was founded in 1983. It’s one of a series of three Herald & Post titles for the Tees Valley, Cleveland and South Durham; the others cover East Cleveland and Stockton & Billingham.
(There were six in the series. The North Yorkshire Herald & Post was closed down in October 2008. The Darlington and South Durham editions were merged in April 2009 to form the Darlington & South Durham Herald & Post, which itself ceased publication in late November 2011.)

It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available free via the website (which is actually the Evening Gazette‘s).
