History of the Site


HoldtheFrontPage was launched in February 2000 and is now jointly owned by four regional newspaper publishing groups.

Over the years we have built up a loyal, niche audience who regularly voice their appreciation of the service we offer.

The site celebrated its 10th anniversary in February 2010 and the current platform was launched a year later. The old site, pictured  left, has been preserved for posterity as part of the British Library’s National Web Archive project.
