The Eastern Daily Press (EDP) is a regional newspaper covering Norfolk, northern parts of Suffolk and eastern Cambridgeshire, and is published daily in Norwich, UK.
Founded in 1870 as a broadsheet called the Eastern Counties Daily Press, it changed its name to the Eastern Daily Press in 1872. It switched to the compact (tabloid) format in the mid-1990s. The paper is now owned and published by Archant, formerly known as Eastern Counties Newspapers Group. It aims to represent the interests of the local population in the region in a non-partisan way, its mission statement being to "champion a fair deal for the future prosperity of the region". Despite its commitment to regional issues, the EDP also covers national (and international) news and sport.
The paper also produces a sister edition, the Norwich Evening News.
