Sister papers to move offices as regional daily marks 140th anniversary

A regional daily has announced it is set to move offices along with its sister titles after celebrating its 140th anniversary with a special edition.

The Dundee Evening Telegraph will switch to a new city centre base in Meadowside, in the city, when it leaves its current Kingsway headquarters.

The move was announced as The Telegraph marked its 140th anniversary on Monday by featuring its original masthead, which was used on its first ever edition on 13 March 1877, on its front page.

A souvenir magazine recounting the history of the newspaper- known locally as the Tully – also featured.

Editor Steven Bell said: “We’re proud to be the go-to source for people wanting to know what’s happening in Dundee and beyond, just as we have been for the past 140 years.

“The city has changed a lot in that time, and continues to evolve today with the £1billion transformation of the Waterfront, the creation of the new V&A Museum and so much more.

“We look forward to continuing to chronicle these developments and everything else that’s going on in Dundee.”

“Although this is a rare chance to look back, the Tully is very much focused on the future. With our new Weekend edition, strong performance in print and digital, and the forthcoming Meadowside move, these are really exciting times for the paper.”

The move also affects DC Thomson magazines and newspapers including The Courier and the Sunday Post.

The company’s printing press and archives will remain at Kingsway, which has been DC Thomson’s HQ since 1905.
