The Manchester Evening News is a British daily newspaper published each week day and on Saturdays which is owned by the Guardian Media Group. It is distributed throughout Greater Manchestermarker. It sells 81,326 copies a day and gives away 99,574.


The paper was first published in 1868 by Mitchell Henry as part of his Parliamentarymarker election campaign. Shortly after the election the newspaper was sold to John Edward Taylor, the son of the founder and owner of the Manchester Guardian (now The Guardian). Taylor brought his brother-in-law Peter Allen in as a partner in the Evening News; after Taylor's death in 1907 the Guardian was sold to its editor C. P. Scott while the Evening News passed into the hands of the Allen family. Scott's Guardian bought the Evening News in the 1920s. From that time the two newspapers have always had a common owner.


Despite its "evening" title, the newspaper began publication of a morning edition in November 2004, a controversial move which brought union members to the brink of strike action over new work rotas.

MEN Lite

In March 2005 the paper launched a cut down afternoon version of the paper titled MEN Lite, which was distributed free to commuters within Manchester's city centre.


On 2 May 2006 the Evening News dropped the "Lite" edition in favour of a "part-free, part-paid" distribution model for the main paper. Copies were handed out free in the city centre, while readers outside that area continued to pay for the paper.

In December 2006, the paper also began free distribution at Manchester Airportmarker and hospitals throughout Greater Manchestermarker.
