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

The Press

The Press is a daily tabloid newspaper sold from Monday to Saturday in the City of York, North Yorkshire, much of East Yorkshire and parts of West Yorkshire, reaching as far afield as Harrogate, Thirsk and Pickering, as well as a good deal of the Yorkshire coast including Scarborough and Bridlington.

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.
