It was established as The Evening Press, “a daily [sic] newspaper for Yorkshire, Durham and the adjoining counties” by William Wallace Hargrove in 1882. From 1905 to 1996 it was named the Yorkshire Evening Press, then simply the Evening Press until 2006, when it switched to morning publication. It changed from broadsheet to tabloid format in 2004.
It’s published by Newsquest (York). It has two editions: the main one and another for Selby.
