The Gloucestershire Echo was founded in 1873.[4]

In 2012, Local World acquired owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[5] The newspaper is now owned by Reach plc, publisher of the Daily Express and Daily Mirror national newspapers.[2]

Until it went weekly with its 12 October 2017 issue, the Gloucestershire Echo was a six-day-a-week daily newspaper produced by Gloucestershire Media, part of Reach plc.[6]

Editor Rachael Sugden was appointed in October 2017 as the paper went weekly. She supplanted Matt Holmes, who had been in position since January 2015.[7][8]
