The series is published by Exeter-based Express & Echo News & Media Ltd, a division of Northcliffe Media (which in turn was part of the Daily Mail & General Trust until November 2012, when it became the major constituent of new media group Local World). It was founded in 1858.
Up until 2013 there were three editions, in order of circulation size:
A fourth joined them in 2013, the Bampton Dulver Gazette, but with only a few dozen copies printed.
All three come out on Tuesdays. They share a single URL, which used to redirect to Northcliffe’s thisisdevon.co.uk website but became the location of a website in its own right in May 2013, following Local World’s decision to launch “publisher-branded” websites for all its newspapers to run alongside Northcliffe’s portal sites.
