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

Oxford Mail

The Oxford Mail is an evening tabloid newspaper sold from Monday to Saturday in the city of Oxford and throughout Oxfordshire, covering the towns of Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Burford, Didcot, Thame, Wallingford, Wantage and Witney.

It was founded in 1928 and replaced a far more venerable title, the Oxford Journal Illustrated, which had been founded in 1753 and known as Jackson’s Oxford Journal for most of its existence. (The first two editions were actually called News, boys, news! or, The Electioneering Journal).

It’s published by Newsquest (Oxfordshire), the local division of the nationwide Newsquest Media Group. The editorial offices are in Oxford.

It has a weekly companion newspaper: the paid-for The Oxford Times. A freesheet, the Oxford Star, ceased publication in mid-June 2013.

Apps for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices were launched at the beginning of 2014.
