It was launched in June 2010 as a sister edition to the Weymouth & Portland Advertiser. It’s published by Newsquest (Southern), part of the Newsquest media group, and is a companion to their paid-for weekly tabloid the Dorset Echo. The editorial offices are in Weymouth.
It has no website of its own; its Internet presence is through the Echo‘s website (through which a free e-edition is available).
It comes out on Fridays.
