The Lincolnshire Echo is a weekly British regional newspaper for Lincolnshire, whose first edition was on Tuesday 31 January 1893, and is published every Thursday. It is owned by Trinity Mirror and it is distributed throughout the county.

Former offices in April 2009

The newspaper was a daily morning publication until Friday 15 October 2011. The first weekly edition was published on Thursday 20 October 2011.

The daily version of the paper was named "Regional Newspaper of the Year" by the Newspaper Society in April 2005.[1] The current editor is Charlie Walker.

The printing plant in Lincoln was closed in 2005 and production was moved to Grimsby, then later to Derby. It now prints in Stoke or Didcot.

The Lincolnshire Echo building was sold in April 2009 to the University of Lincoln. The Lincolnshire Echo has moved to office space in Witham Wharf, still in the city centre.

In 2012, Local World acquired owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[2] In October 2015, Local World was bought in full by its part-shareholder Trinity Mirror.

The paper uses its www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk website to break stories from the Echo as well as its sister weeklies, the Boston Target, the Sleaford Target, the East Lindsey Target and the Retford Times.
