It was established in 1857 (as The Greenock Telegraph and Clyde Shipping Gazette) and is thus Scotland’s oldest evening newspaper – and was also Britain’s first halfpenny evening paper when it was founded. It’s published by the Romanes Media Group (formerly Clyde & Forth Press) from editorial offices in Greenock; it’s unique in that it’s the only Romanes title not to be published by a subsidiary division.
It introduced a part-paywall in January 2012.
