Falkirk Advertiser (defunct)

The Falkirk Advertiser was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in the Falkirk Council Area of central Scotland, including the towns of Stenhousemuir, Polmont and Denny as well as Falkirk itself.

It was published by Johnston (Falkirk) Ltd, the original company behind the nationwide Johnston Press group of regional newspaper publishers. The editorial offices were shared with Johnston’s paid-for title for the area, the Falkirk Herald.

It was founded in 1979. As well as being a title in its own right, it was also the lead newspaper in a three-title Falkirk, Grangemouth & Linlithgow Advertiser series along with the Grangemouth Advertiser and the Linlithgow Advertiser.

The Advertiser had no website of its own; the link below is to the Herald‘s website.

It came out on Wednesdays.

In February 2011 it merged with the Grangemouth Advertiser as the Falkirk & Grangemouth Advertiser. However, the merged title ceased publication 18 months later.
