Huddersfield Daily Examiner

The Huddersfield Daily Examiner is a tabloid newspaper published on Mondays to Saturdays for the town of Huddersfield in West Yorkshire and other towns and villages in the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees, including Dewsbury, Holmfirth, Kirkburton, Meltham, Marsden and Slaithwaite. It’s also sold in some towns in bordering parts of the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale, notably Halifax and Brighouse, and of the City of Wakefield.

It was first published in 1871 as the companion to an existing weekly newspaper, The Huddersfield Examiner and West Riding Reporter, which had been founded in 1851 as the Huddersfield & Holmfirth Examiner but changed its name in 1860.

It’s published by Trinity Mirror Huddersfield (formerly Examiner News & Info Services Ltd), a branch of Trinity Mirror‘s North West and Wales division. The editorial offices are in Huddersfield.

Besides the main edition, there’s a sub-edition covering Brighouse and Elland that accounts for just over per cent of the print run. It was joined by a smaller sub-edition for North Kirklees in early August 2013.

An associated weekly freesheet tabloid, the Huddersfield Weekly News, appears to have ceased publication in 2011. It shared the same website and offices.
