The Eastbourne Herald, commonly known locally as just The Herald, is a weekly tabloid newspaper, published on Fridays and published since 1865 in Eastbourne, England.[1]

The Eastbourne Herald is also a monthly published newspaper in Eastbourne, Wellington, New Zealand.


The newspaper was originally named the Eastbourne Chronicle but changed its name to the Eastbourne Herald Chronicle in 1951. The name remained until 1966 when then name was shortened to the Eastbourne Herald. Nowadays, the paper is edited and created by Beckett Newspapers, based in Eastbourne, and printed by Johnston Press at their headquarters in Hilsea, Portsmouth.

Sister newspaper[edit]

The Herald also has a sister newspaper, owned by Beckett Newspapers, called the Eastbourne Gazette. The Gazette is printed on a Wednesday and is cheaper than the Herald. Eastbourne is one of the few remaining towns in the UK which has a midweek paid-for newspaper as well as an end-of-week title.
