History[edit] The former Yorkshire Post headquarters at Wellington Street, Leeds. It is now located at No. 1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road.[3] The paper was founded in 1754, as the Leeds Intelligencer, making it one of Britain's first daily newspapers. The Leeds Intelligencer was a weekly newspaper until it was given its current name and was published daily in 1866.[4] The first issue of The Yorkshire Post, on 2 July 1866 (after the change of title from the Intelligencer), included the following statement: “ the political principles of this journal are Conservative; while supporting every practical improvement, it will resist organic changes ... It will be at once conservative and progressive, a foe to democracy and revolution, but the firm friend of all constitutional reform. ” — Yorkshire Post, 2 July 1866[5] The newspaper broke the story of the Edward VIII abdication crisis under the editorship of Arthur Mann.[6] In 1939, the Yorkshire Post absorbed a rival, the Leeds Mercury, which was founded in 1718 and at its peak was quite liberal in comparison to the Leeds Intelligencer in the late 18th century.[7] At its peak in the 1950s, the Yorkshire Post sold 120,000 copies a day. This figure had dropped to 40,000 by 2012,[6] rising to nearer 90,000 on a weekend. As well as publishing regular supplements on sport, rural affairs, culture and motoring it runs an extensive business section with two weekly pull-out supplements. In 2012, as its parent company Johnston Press sought to cut costs, it was merged with the Yorkshire Evening Post – the local newspaper for Leeds - with the then editor, Peter Charlton, overseeing both titles. The merger saw the formation of combined departments for news, business, sport and features – with correspondents writing for both titles. Among its current staff are investigative journalist Rob Waugh, as well as sports writers Richard Sutcliffe and Nick Westby. In February 2012 Johnston Press announced that printing of The Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post in Leeds would be switched to their plant at Dinnington near Sheffield and the Leeds printing facility closed. In September 2013, it was announced the Wellington Street premises would be demolished as journalists had already moved out. Preliminary demolition began in March 2014, while in April 2014 it was announced the iconic tower would be spared. In March 2014, 'The' was reintroduced on the name of the paper after 46 years.[8]
