The Coventry Telegraph is a local English tabloid newspaper. Originally called The Midland Daily Telegraph, it was founded in 1891 by William Isaac Iliffe as Coventry's first daily newspaper, a four-page broadsheet newspaper originally sold for a half penny. It changed its name to the Coventry Evening Telegraph on 17 November 1941, and to the Coventry Telegraph on 2 October 2006.
As of 2010, it is part of the Trinity Mirror group, the biggest regional newspaper publisher in the United Kingdom and has a daily circulation of approximately 47,000 copies (July to December 2007).
From 1946 until the end of April 2004, a separate sports publication, The Pink, was printed every Saturday evening. It provided coverage of sport from the Midlands, as well as national and international sport. The fortunes of Coventry City F.C. played a prominent role in The Pink'. With the 1998-99 football season, The Pink, became the first regional evening newspaper to provide same day reports from all FA Premiership matches.
In 1985, the local radio station Mercia FM and the Telegraph formed the Snowball Appeal, a charitable organisation whose aim is to raise money to help sick and needy children in Coventry and Warwickshire.
From Monday 2 October 2006, the publication changed from an evening paper to a morning paper. To reflect this change, the newspaper's name changed to simply Coventry Telegraph. The switch to a morning paper saw a change in emphasis with the printed edition concentrating on exclusive and community news, leaving breaking news to its website.
The Telegraph is published Monday to Saturday in the following editions:
