The Evening Chronicle is a daily, evening newspaper produced in Newcastle upon Tyne, covering Tyne and Wear, southern Northumberland and northern County Durham. The Evening Chronicle is published by ncjMedia, a division of Trinity Mirror.

History

The Chronicle originated as the Newcastle Chronicle, founded in 1764 as a weekly newspaper by Thomas Stack. The paper was owned by his descendants until 1850, when it was sold to a consortium led by Mark William Lambert, a local businessman. The repeal of the taxes on newspapers in 1855, along with the hiring of new journalists and the installation of a new printing press created an opportunity to expand the newspaper. On May 1, 1858, the Newcastle Daily Chronicle was launched. Its editor was Joseph Cowen, who became the sole owner at the end of 1859. He soon turned the Chronicle into the most successful newspaper in north-eastern England and one of the most successful provincial newspapers of the 19th century.[1]

Present Day

The Chronicle was always a broadsheet, from its inception right up until 8 October 1997, when it became a tabloid-sized paper. The Evening Chronicle newspaper concentrates on local news, human interest stories and sport particularly Newcastle United FC. Chronicle circulation increases on Thursdays with the publication of a jobs section.

Until 2007 the paper was published twice daily, with an evening edition on sale from the late afternoon.

Sister papers

Owned by Trinity Mirror, the Chronicle is the sister publication of another North East newspaper The Journal. The two papers complement each other with The Journal being published in the morning and the Chronicle in the afternoon and evening.

In 2007, the local free paper The Herald and Post was rebranded under the Chronicle banner, as Chronicle Extra.

For 110 years another sister paper was The Pink, a football-based paper issued on a Saturday afternoon. This ceased publication in 2005.

Newcastle United FC ban

Since October 2013, the Chronicle, Journal and Sunday Sun have been banned from Newcastle United F.C. due to the papers' coverage of a fans' protest march.[2]
