The Evening Gazette is the most popular daily newspaper in Teesside, and has been an integral part of life in the area since 1869, when it was founded as the North-Eastern Daily Gazette by the Scot, and eventual Liberal Member of Parliament for Aston Manor, Hugh Gilzean Reid. It was also at this time, that a first premises was established on Zetland Road, Middlesbrough. It mainly provides local news, but also covers national, international and sports news as well as having various supplements relating to lifestyle, business, and events.
The current main Evening Gazette building is located on Borough Road in the centre of Middlesbrough. This houses the editorial staff as well as various operational departments such as advertising, production and finance. There is a further Gazette Media Company site on the Riverside Industrial Estate which houses the printing press.
There is also an educational centre at the Borough Road site, the Gazette Media Centre.
In the 1960s the Gazette began printing the sports edition on pink newsprint. Soon the edition began to be known as "the Pink". To encourage people to buy the sports edition, at a time when television was affecting its sales, competitions were run "In the Pink" with cash prizes.
