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

Evening Times

The Evening Times is an evening tabloid newspaper sold on Monday to Saturday throughout the City of Glasgow and the Greater Glasgow area, and more widely around Strathclyde, the West Coast of Scotland and central Scotland, as far afield as Fort William, Campbeltown, Dumfries and Perth.

It’s Glasgow’s only evening title.

It was founded in 1876 as a sister paper to what was then the Glasgow Herald. Original publishers George Outram were bought by Sir Hugh Fraser in 1964 and then sold to Tiny Rowland’s Lonrho group in 1979. After a spell of owner-management from 1992 to 1996 as Caledonian Newspapers, the Herald and the Times were acquired by Scottish Television, who were rebranded the Scottish Media Group (later SMG).

Since 2003 it’s been published by Newsquest (Herald & Times), who also publish The Herald.

Its slogan is: “Nobody knows Glasgow better”.

There are three editions: the Main edition, the Late News Final and (on Saturdays) the Weekend Times. E-editions are also available via the website by paid subscription.
