"The Salem News" (formerly the "Salem Evening News") is a six-day (Monday through Saturday) afternoon daily newspaper serving southern Essex County, Massachusetts, USA. Although the paper is historically connected with the city of Salem, its offices are in nearby Beverly, Massachusetts. The newspaper is published by Eagle-Tribune Publishing Company, a subsidiary of Community Newspaper Holdings Inc.

In addition to its home cities, the "News" covers most of southern Essex County, northeast of Boston. The paper formerly published separate editions in Beverly and Peabody. The paper's circulation has been consistently over 30,000 for years, giving it some 63,000 readers every day.

History

In 1995, the long-independent "Salem Evening News" was bought for US$16.5 million by Ottaway Community Newspapers, a division of Dow Jones & Company and owner of two of the "Evening News"'s chief daily competitors, the evening "Beverly Times" (9,000 circulation) and "Peabody Times" (3,000 circulation). The "Evening News" had a circulation around 36,000 at the time of the sale. Ottaway's Essex County Newspapers division, which also published the "Gloucester Daily Times" and "The Daily News of Newburyport", moved its headquarters to the "Evening News"'s Beverly offices. ["R.I. Evening Paper to Close; 3 North of Boston Combining". "The Boston Globe", March 24, 1995.]

Ottaway, which still owns the "Cape Cod Times" and "The Standard-Times" in southeastern Massachusetts, seven years later sold its Essex County holdings, including the Salem paper, to their top competitor.

"The Eagle-Tribune" of North Andover bought the North Shore chain in 2002, paying US$70 million for the Gloucester, Newburyport and Salem papers. "Eagle-Tribune" executives touted the creation of a regional news organization; they also laid off some 45 staffers at the Essex County papers, including the editors of the Newburyport and Salem papers.

The "Eagle-Tribune" chain was itself bought for an undisclosed amount of money by Community Newspaper Holdings, an Alabama company, in 2005. ["Eagle-Tribune Chain Sold to Ala. Newspaper Group". "The Patriot Ledger" (Quincy, Mass.), July 28, 2005.]
