The Herald is a Scottish broadsheet newspaper founded in 1783. It is said to be the longest running national newspaper in the world. It is printed at Cambuslang, just outside Glasgow.
The newspaper began in January 1783 as a weekly publication and was called the Advertiser. It was owned by John Mennons who left the newspaper in 1802. The new owners changed the name to The Herald and Advertiser and Commercial Chronicle in 1803 and to The Glasgow Herald in 1804. It became the Glasgow Herald in 1834 and began daily publication in 1858. From 1836 to 1964 the publication was owned by George Outram & Co. It was bought by Sir Hugh Fraser who sold it ten years later to the Lonrho empire. In 1895, publication moved to a building in Mitchell Street and in 1980 it moved to offices to Albion Street in Glasgow, into the old Scottish Daily Express building.
