The Tamworth Herald is a weekly tabloid newspaper published every Thursday in Tamworth, Staffordshire, England. Its offices are based in Ventura Park Road, Bitterscote, and its current editor is Gary Phelps. The newspaper covers events across Tamworth and south Staffordshire, as well as North Warwickshire.

The newspaper was founded as a broadsheet in 1868 [cite web|url= http://www.thisistamworth.co.uk/displayNode.jsp?nodeId=166158&command=newPage|title= This is tamworth's History of the Tamworth Herald] by businessman Daniel Addison, and the original offices were based in Silver Street [ [http://www.holdthefrontpage.co.uk/bygones/2001/08aug/010820tam.shtml A little Herald history by John Harper] ] .

"D Addison Newsagent Bookseller and Stationer Silver Street Tamworth. D.A. takes the present opportunity of tendering his sincere thanks to his friends and public generally for the patronage with which he has been favoured since his commencement in business, and begs to assure his numerous friends that their future favours will receive the same prompt attention and care which has hitherto gained for him their confidence and support.Bibles, Prayer Books, Church Services, Tamworth Church Hymn Books, Ledgers, Journals, Cash and Day Books &c in stock and to order. All the current monthly and other Magazines, and the London & Provincial daily and weekly newspapers punctually supplied on the day of publication. Miscellaneous orders for new books &c executed with despatch."

Mr Addison continued to publish the paper for nine years until October 29, 1877, when it was taken over by a consortium of leading townsmen. The paper now has its offices on the town's Ventura Park industrial estate. Until the early 2000s, the Herald was published on a Friday, but the day of publication has now been switched to a Thursday. Three editions of the paper are currently published; one for Tamworth, and an edition each for Coleshill and Atherstone. Much of the content in all three is the same, although the front pages vary, concentrating on local issues in the different areas.

The Herald is owned by Central Independent Newspapers, which is itself owned by Northcliffe Media. The CIN group owns a number of other news publications around the Midlands, including the Sutton Coldfield Observer.
