Dudley News

The Dudley News is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Dudley and surrounding communities in the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley in the West Midlands, including Netherton, Brierley Hill and Cradley Heath.

It’s published by Newsquest (Midlands South) and is one of a three-title series together with the Stourbridge News and the Halesowen News. The editorial offices for the series are in Stourbridge.

It was launched in 1991 as the Dudley News & County Express; the County Express was dropped from the title in 2001.

It comes out on Wednesdays. A free e-edition is also available on the website; for a time, you had to provide your email address to access it, but that requirement now seems to have been lifted.
