History

The Yorkshire Evening Press was established in 1882.[3] It changed from broadsheet to compact format in 2004[1] and shortly afterwards dropped "Yorkshire" from the title. Morning printing began on 24 April 2006, and the paper was given its present name.[citation needed]

William Wallace Hargrove printed at 9 Coney Street. Paper was delivered by barge along the River Ouse. In 1989, publication moved to Walmgate.[3]

The Press has run campaigns including their Guardian Angels Appeal[7] and Change It.[8]
