The paper was first published in 1868 by Mitchell Henry as part of his Parliamentary election campaign. Shortly after the election the newspaper was sold to John Edward Taylor, the son of the founder and owner of the Manchester Guardian (now The Guardian). Taylor brought his brother-in-law Peter Allen in as a partner in the Evening News; after Taylor's death in 1907 the Guardian was sold to its editor C. P. Scott while the Evening News passed into the hands of the Allen family. Scott's Guardian bought the Evening News in the 1920s. From that time the two newspapers have always had a common owner – it is currently one of 62 newspapers owned by the Guardian Media Group. 1868 (MDCCCLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a leap year starting on Friday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ...

Despite its "evening" title, the newspaper began publication of a morning edition in November 2004, a controversial move which brought union members to the brink of strike action over new work rotas.


In March 2005 the paper launched a cut down evening version of the paper titled MEN Lite which was distributed free to commuters within Manchester city centre. Due to low city centre sales of the 35p Evening News, the MEN Lite brand was dropped on May 2nd 2006 and was replaced with a free version of the Manchester Evening News.


Even though the MEN is given away in the City Centre, the newspaper still retails for 35p in the suburbs. In December 2006, the paper also began free distribution at Manchester Airport. Manchester Airport (IATA: MAN, ICAO: EGCC) is a major airport in Manchester, England. ...

Manchester Evening News NUJ Chapel (570 words)
Journalists at the MEN are voting in yet another strike ballot while, at the same time, chapel officers try to find a solution to the dilemma of flexible working.
Friday March 3 2006 was a sad day for journalists at the Manchester Evening News, when 27 of their colleagues/comrades/friends plus a number of editorial support staff were made redundant.

The Manchester Evening News Arena, Manchester Storm (994 words)
The Manchester Evening News Arena, home of the Manchester Storm who hit the ice for the very first time in 1995/1996 and were immedeatly included in the then-new Superleague in 1996, seats 17.250 fans and doesn´t have to shy away from any comparisons to other top-venues across the continent or even across the Atlantic Ocean.
Due to the fact that the arena has been put right into downtown Manchester the constructors didn´t have a whole lot of real estate to work with, if you´re scared of heights I would strongly recommend tickets in the lower bowl as the construction of the arena itself is very (very very) steep.
The Manchester Evening News Arena is situated on the A56, 3 miles from junction 17 on the M62
