The Birmingham Post newspaper was originally published under the name Daily Post in Birmingham, England in 1857 by John Frederick Feeney. It was the largest selling broadsheet in the West Midlands, though it faced little if any competition in this category. It changed to tabloid size in 2008. The paper stopped issuing advertisements on its front page in 1946 and replaced them with front-page news.[2]

The Post and Mail building, Birmingham opened in 1965 to accommodate the Post and Evening Mail newspapers, but The Post and its sister titles relocated to the restored Fort Dunlop building, three miles out of the city centre, in August 2008.

After changing hands many times, the newspaper is now part of the Trinity Mirror group. In February 2008 the newspaper re-launched its website as birminghampost.net.

In November 2009, the paper moved to weekly publication.[3]
