History of the Site


HoldtheFrontPage was launched in February 2000 by Northcliffe Electronic Publishing, now part of Local World. The Newsquest publishing group acquired a 50pc stake at the start of 2001. Trinity Mirror came on board in 2002 and Johnston Press joined the partnership in 2004.

The site is now equally owned by each of four newspaper publishing groups but is
editorially independent.

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, radically redesigned platform was launched a year later. The old site, pictured above left, has been preserved for posterity as part of the British Library’s National Web Archive project.
