History

The Guernsey Evening Press was first published in 1897. In 1951 it purchased the struggling Guernsey Star (first published in 1813), renaming itself Guernsey Evening Press and Star.[1]. The paper was published by The Guernsey Press Company until 1999 when the company merged with Jersey Evening Post, publishers of the Jersey Evening Post. In 2004 Guiton came under the ownership of the Claverlely Group, which also owns the Wolverhampton Express and Star and the Shropshire Star.

Publication and Circulation

The paper is currently published six days a week and has a circulation of 15,165 (average for December 2010-June 2011).[2]
