About the Hull Daily Mail

The Hull Daily Mail is an English regional evening newspaper serving the city of Kingston-upon-Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The newspaper is owned by Northcliffe Media, a large UK-based regional publisher, and the Associated Newspapers, whose national titles include the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday. This article highlights the role that the Daily Hull Mail has played in Yorkshire from the time of its settlement till present.

History

The Hull Daily Mail The Hull Daily Mail was established in 1885. It was formed by a group of Conservative Party activists, who were looking to boost the electoral chances of one of their candidates. By early 1886, the paper had taken over existing Hull weekly newspapers, the Hull Packet and its sister paper and the Hull and Yorkshire Times. Both of these titles were incorporated into the weekly paper, the Hull and East Yorkshire Times. Status and awards By 1930, the paper had become the only local daily paper in Hull and retains the same status today. The paper has been awarded the "Yorkshire Daily Newspaper of the Year" four times, taking the award in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007.

Coverage

Hull News The newspaper and its website (Thisishullandeastriding.co.uk) cover a full range of Hull news, as well as, news from the wider East Riding towns such as Beverley and Hornsea. Hull jobs are advertised and the paper also covers issues of national interests. Sports The city's sports teams receive major coverage, with football side Hull City FC receiving prominence in the paper's pages. Hull is readily associated in the popular mind more with rugby league, and its two sides, Hull Kingston Rovers (from the east of the city) and Hull FC (from west of the River Hull) are covered in details.

World War Two revisited

World War Two commemoration As part of its commemoration of the city, that is, Hull's traumatic Second World War experiences (where it became the most bombed town in Britain, a surprising fact for many Britons as coverage was censored during the war itself), the Hull Daily Mail cleared its front page to mark the 70th anniversary of the 1941 attacks, in May 2011. The names of the 1241 men, women and children who died as a result of Nazi air raids, were published on the front page, and the paper also devoted six additional pages in remebrance of the raids. The paper further copied its own wartime style. Cultural role of the Hull Daily Mail This feature attracted huge praise from prominent Hull citizens, and was something of a testament to the paper's ongoing cultural role in the city.
