Lincolnshire Echo

The Lincolnshire Echo is a daily (evening) British regional newspaper for Lincolnshire, founded in 1894. It is owned by Northcliffe Newspapers. The main area for the paper's distribution is in or around Lincoln. It is published six days a week (daily except Sundays).

In 2005 the printing press in Lincoln was closed and production was moved to Grimsby. As a result the paper now prints overnight and is available for sale at 7am. There is no second edition and the paper uses it web site to break stories that happen during the day.

Lincolnshire Media Ltd also produces a series of "Target" newspapers - free weekly newspapers containing articles from the previous week's Echo for specific areas, including Boston, Gainsborough, Grantham, Lincoln, Louth, Skegness. The "Retford Times" is a weekly paid-for newspaper for the town of Retford, also produced by the group.The company also produces the websites thisislincolnshire.co.uk and sportsecho.co.uk - a sports website that replaced the Saturday sports paper which closed in 2006.

As of June 2006 paper has an average circulation of 24,560 [http://mediapack.lincolnshireecho.co.uk/products/newspapers/default.asp] , though many of the free Target newspapers have higher circulation figures.

The paper was named "Regional Newspaper of the Year" by the Newspaper Society in April 2005 [http://mediapack.lincolnshireecho.co.uk/awards/?genid=1556&homeid=1495&pageno=1&subcentreid=17] . The current editor is Jon Grubb.

During the period 2002-2005, the paper played a major role in exposing a local political scandal, when it challenged Jim Speechley, the then Conservative leader of Lincolnshire County Council, who was jailed for 18 months in 2004 for financial corruption.
