The Evening Chronicle is a daily, evening newspaper produced in Newcastle upon Tyne, covering Tyne and Wear, southern Northumberland and northern County Durham. It was founded in 1885 by Joseph Cowen. It is published by ncjMedia, a division of Trinity Mirror.
The Chronicle was always a broadsheet, from its inception right up until 8 October 1997, when it became a tabloid-sized paper. The newspaper concentrates on local news, largely human interest stories and sport. Circulation increases on Thursdays with the publication of a large jobs section.
Owned by Trinity Mirror, the Chronicle is the sister publication of another North East newspaper The Journal. The two papers complement each other with The Journal being published in the morning and the Chronicle in the afternoon and evening.
In 2007, the local free paper The Herald and Post was rebranded under the Chronicle banner, as Chronicle Extra.
