NWN Media is a long-established independent publishing company based in Mold that brings out several daily and weekly titles across North and Mid Wales and the neighbouring counties of Cheshire and Shropshire in England, notably the Leader series in Chester, Wrexham and Flintshire.
The company’s antecedents stretch back into the nineteenth century with a small printer publishing a railway timetable which in 1849 became The Oswestry Advertiser, and Railway Guide – now the Oswestry & Border Counties Advertizer. Eventually a new firm, Woodall, Minshall and Thomas, was established. The Thomas family have remained involved with the company ever since.
The company was incorporated as North Wales Newspapers Ltd in 1920 – the year in which the Wrexham Leader was launched.
In the 1960s NWN acquired its oldest existing title, the 1827-founded North Wales Chronicle.
In 1988 NWN moved its headquarters to Mold in Flintshire.
In 2007 North Wales Newspapers became NWN Media Ltd to reflect the expansion of its business into web-based publication.
