Eastern Daily Press

The Eastern Daily Press, commonly referred to as the EDP, is a regional newspaper covering Norfolk, and 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 moved 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. The EDP is the best-selling regional morning newspaper in England and is the only regional British newspaper to out-sell "The Sun" in its region.

It aims to represent the interests of the local population in the region in a non-partisan way with its mission statement being to 'champion a fair deal for the future prosperity of the region'.
