The Gloucestershire Echo is a local weekly newspaper based in Gloucester, England. Published every Thursday, it covers the areas of Bishops Cleeve, Cheltenham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold and Tewkesbury.[1] The newspaper is headquartered at Gloucester Quays.[2]


The Gloucestershire Echo was founded in 1873.[citation needed]

In 2012, Local World acquired owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[3] The newspaper is now owned by Reach plc, publisher of the Daily Express and Daily Mirror national newspapers.[1]

Until it went weekly with its October 12 2017 issue, the Gloucestershire Echo was a six-day-a-week daily newspaper produced by Gloucestershire Media, part of Reach plc.[4]

Editor Rachael Sugden was appointed in October 2017 as the paper went weekly. She supplanted Matt Holmes, who had been in position since January 2015.[5][6]
