The Hemel Hempstead Gazette[2] is the local paper for the Hemel Hempstead area in the United Kingdom.[3][4]

History[edit]

It was first published in 1858 as The Hemel Hempstead Gazette and West Herts Advertiser, this was renamed in 1899 as The Hertfordshire, Hemel Hempstead Gazette and West Herts Advertiser and it was published under this title until 1973.

From 1973 it was known simply as the Hemel Hempstead Gazette, and from 1991 as The Gazette.[5]

The paper has generated two siblings, the Berkhamsted & Tring Gazette and the free doorstep delivered Herald Express, all of which come from the same offices.[3]

Publication, production and ownership[edit]

Both geographic editions of The Gazette appear on Wednesdays.[3]

The Gazette's online presence is known as "hemeltoday",[2] with archives going back to 1990. In 2009 two additional websites were created to complement the Berkhamsted[6] and Tring editions.[7]

The editor of the Gazette is John Francis, and the deputy editor is Wes Smith. About 10 people work in the editorial department which is the central hub of the business's operation.

It is based at Newspaper House, 39 Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead, Herts, HP1 1LH.

The Hemel Hempstead Gazette is part of Premier Newspapers Ltd which itself is part of the Johnston Press group of local newspapers. [4][8] It is printed in Sheffield.
