It was founded in 1859 and was the first newspaper in the town; a competitor, the Eastbourne Chronicle, was founded six years later but is now a sister title (having been absorbed by the Eastbourne Herald in 1951). Its midweek publication day means (according to its website, which it shares with the Herald) that the area is one of the few remaining places in Britain that has both a midweek and an end-of-week paid newspaper.
It’s published by T R Beckett Ltd, part of Johnston Press‘s South Division, from editorial offices in Eastbourne.
There are three sub-editions: besides the main Eastbourne Gazette edition, there’s also the Hailsham Gazette and the Seaford Gazette. All come out on Wednesdays.
