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

Doncaster Advertiser (defunct)

The Doncaster Advertiser was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town and Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire.

It was founded in 1974. It was published by South Yorkshire Newspapers, a division of the nationwide regional newspaper publishing group Johnston Press, as a companion to the paid-for weekly title the Doncaster Free Press (whose editorial offices and website it shared).

It claimed to have the largest distribution of any free newspaper in the Doncaster area.

It came out on Fridays.

It was shut down in early October 2012 after Johnston Press decided to concentrate its production resources on its paid-for newspapers in the South Yorkshire/North East Midlands area.
