Encyclopedia > Evening Standard (London)

The Evening Standard is a newspaper published in London. It was launched as the Standard on May 21, 1827. For a short period during the 1990s it reverted to its original name.

In the beginning of the 20th century the paper was owned by Canadian tycoon Lord Beaverbrook, who also owned the Daily Express. The paper is currently owned by Daily Mail and General Trust, publishers of the Daily Mail.

The newspaper currently publishes four editions each day, from Monday to Friday excluding Bank holidays. In addition to the main London editions, there is also a "Metro" edition available throughout the Home Counties.

Max Hastings was editor from 1996 until his retirement in 2002. Veronica Wadley is the current editor.

On 14 December 2004 Associated Newspapers have lauched a freesheet edition of the Evening Standard called Standard Lite in a bid to stop the circulation of the publication falling further. This has 48 pages compared to approximately 80 in the main paper, which also has a supplement on most days. It is designed to be especially attractive to younger female readers, and features a wide range of lifestyle articles but less news and business news than the main paper. It is only available until 2.30pm.

For many British people the plaintive Cockney cry of the newspaper's street sellers represents an essential part of the London fabric - "Eenin Stannard".

The Evening Standard has sponsored the annual Evening Standard Theatre Awards since the 1950s.
