About Manchester Evening News

The Manchester Evening News was first published back in 1868 by Mitchell Henry, as part of an election campaign. Following the election, the newspaper was sold to the owner of the Manchester Guardian, which is now known as the Guardian. It became the evening version of the morning paper. It was later sold to another company, before becoming a part of the Guardian family again in the 1920’s, until it was sold to the Trinity Mirror Group in 2010.

Contradicting the ‘evening’ title of the paper, the paper began publishing a morning edition in 2004. A year later, the company began published MEN Lite, a free version of the newspaper which was to be distributed to commuters.

In 2006, the Lite edition was dropped and instead the main newspaper was made free in Manchester city centre, with residents outside the area paying for the newspaper. As of 2010, it was announced that the paper would no longer be distributed for free except for on Tuesdays and Fridays in certain locations such as Manchester Airport and local hospitals.

Today, the Manchester Evening News is published every day except for Sunday. It has an average daily circulation of around 52,000, of which around 25,000 are paid for. The newspaper has a political alignment with the Labour party.

The newspaper has a team of journalists working across a range of editorial sections such as; politics, local Government, trade unions, court, education, religion, health, breaking news and digital.
