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

Paisley Daily Express

The Paisley Daily Express is a daily tabloid newspaper sold from Monday to Saturday in the town of Paisley in Renfrewshire and the surrounding area, including the towns of Renfrew, Johnstone, Erskine and Linwood.

It was founded in 1874 and has kept its original title throughout its existence.

It’s published by Hamilton-based Media Scotland, a branch of Trinity Mirror formed in December 2011 by the amalgamation of their Scottish regional publications branch, Scottish & Universal Newspapers, with the Daily Record and Sunday Mail. The editorial offices were previously in Paisley, but were centralised in Glasgow as part of the reorganisation process.

It’s known locally as the “Wee Express”, to distinguish it from the national newspaper the Daily Express (the “Big Express”).

In August 2012 it underwent a major redesign, a dramatic promotional drop in price from 45p to 20p (along with a week of giveaways with every issue, including a free Warburtons loaf from Costcutter and two free doughnuts from Aulds) and an increase in page count (including more entertainment and more user-generated content) as the first of Media Scotland’s titles to be produced under Trinity Mirror’s ContentWatch content management system.

It lost its own website at in 2013 when Media Scotland unified all its local newspapers’ online presences through the website of the Daily Record and Sunday Mail.
