"The Evening Times" is an evening tabloid newspaper published Monday to Saturday in
The paper, an evening sister paper of "The Herald", was established in 1876. The paper's slogan is "Nobody knows Glasgow better".
Publication of the "Evening Times" (and its sister paper) moved to a
Charles Rennie Mackintoshbuilding in Mitchell Street in 1868. The building is now The Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Architecture, Design and the City.
In 1964, publishers George Outram were bought by Sir Hugh Fraser. In 1979 the ownership was acquired by
Tiny Rowland's Lonrho.
19 July 1980the paper moved to offices at 195 Albion Street, a black-fronted building modelled after the "Black Lubyanka" building of the Daily Express in London's Fleet Street. The Albion Street building had previously housed the Scottish Daily News workers' cooperativefrom May to November 1975.
A management buy-out in May 1992 created Caledonian Newspapers, later purchased by
Scottish Televisionin 1996. After the purchase the TV group renamed itself "Scottish Media Group", which was later shortened to SMG, and in 2008 rebranded as STV Group plc.
"The Evening Times" and "The Herald" are owned by
Newsquest(a division of Gannett), which acquired it with the purchase of the publishing arm of the Scottish Media Group in 2003 in a highly controversial £216-million sale.
The newspaper is sold in trademark vendor stalls around Glasgow City Centre, with the salesmen calling out the well-known slogan Times! Evening Times! every few minutes. In addition it is delivered to doors around
Glasgowby paper boys and girls, and is also sold in numerous stores around Greater Glasgow.
The Evening Times gives its name to an annual pocket-sized
Scottish footballpublication called the Wee Red Book, which contains both the following season's fixtures in Scotland's four senior divisions and lists of previous league and cup winners from Scotland, England and Europe.
