The newspaper was first published on 20 August 1900, and the centenary of the paper was celebrated in, Echoes of the Century, a book published by the Daily Echo in 2000 that chronicles the history and reportage of a century.[2] In October 2006, the EDF Energy London and South of England Media Awards awarded The Daily Echo the title of Daily Newspaper of the Year. In the same competition, the paper also won Columnist of the Year and Environmental Journalist of the Year for the work put forth by Faith Eckersall and Natalie Bruckner, respectively.[3]

The paper's website is infamous locally, for its often commical 'comment wars' between students and the local population of Bournemouth over a multitude of issues.

The paper was heavily involved with the Tesco bomb campaign, an attmepted extortion against Tesco stores in the Bournemouth area in 2000-01, including placing classified adverts on behalf of the police to allow them to communicate with the perpetrator.
