Coventry Telegraph

The Coventry Telegraph is a daily tabloid newspaper sold in the city and metropolitan borough of Coventry in the West Midlands, and across large parts of Warwickshire including the town of Nuneaton.

It was founded in 1891 as The Midland Daily Telegraph, the city’s first daily newspaper, and was renamed the Coventry Evening Telegraph in 1941. It dropped the Evening from its name in October 2006 to reflect the switch made at that time from evening to morning publication.

It’s published by Coventry & Warwickshire Newspapers Ltd, a division of Trinity Mirror Midlands.

There are three geographical editions: the City edition for Coventry itself, plus sub-editions for Nuneaton and for eastern and southern Warwickshire. There’s also a Midweek Pink edition focusing on sports, and a companion weekly freesheet, the Coventry Times.

Each day has at least one special feature supplement:

  • Monday: Your Life – health, education, family and business
  • Tuesday: Junior sports
  • Wednesday: Property
  • Thursday: Jobs
  • Friday: What’s on – entertainment listings; Drivetime – motoring and car ads
  • Saturday: Weekend – leisure; Game On – sport

An e-edition’s available by paid subscription. Copies of the City edition are also distributed free at Birmingham International Airport.

In June 2012 Trinity Mirror announced that the Telegraph would be moving away from its Corporation Street offices after 55 years; it moved to Coventry Canal Basin on the corner of Leicester Row and St Nicholas Street. The old site has been sold for redevelopment.
