The Blackpool Gazette is an English evening newspaper based in Blackpool, Lancashire. Published every day except Sunday, it covers the towns and communities of the Fylde coast. It was founded as The West Lancashire Evening Gazette before being renamed the Evening Gazette, and then Blackpool Gazette.

Background[edit]

The newspaper is published by Blackpool Gazette & Herald Ltd, and is known locally as The Gazette. Two other weekly newspapers are also published - the Lytham St.Annes Express and the Fleetwood Weekly News, and one free weekly newspaper, the Blackpool Reporter. All are owned by Johnston Press.[1]

The Gazette also publishes a daily online version in Polish, Witryana Polska - Polish Gazette to cater for the local Polish community.[2]

The Gazette has a close link with local football club Blackpool F.C. The newspaper decided to scrap club chairman Karl Oyston's weekly column "given such disgusting and offensive comments" he made to a Blackpool fan.[3]
