The Courier & Advertiser, more commonly known as simply The Courier, is a tabloid newspaper published by D. C. Thomson & Co. in Dundee, Scotland. It is printed in five daily editions: the general edition, and regional editions for Fife, Perth, Angus and Dundee.
Established in 1801 as the Dundee Courier & Argus, the entire front page of The Courier used to contain classified advertisements – a traditional newspaper format for many years. The Courier was unusual in maintaining this format until 1992, when it adopted a conventional headline-news format. The next major change to the newspaper came on 21 January 2012, when it changed to a tabloid format, having previously existed as a broadsheet. Editor Richard Neville said the move represented the 'dawn of a new era' and that the company was 'investing in new sections, increasing content across the title and investing significantly in resources'. Just over a year later, a digital version of the newspaper was launched.
