Western Mail Newspaper Information

The Western Mail is a daily tabloid newspaper published by Media Wales Ltd in Cardiff, Wales owned by the UK's largest newspaper company, Trinity Mirror. It describes itself as "the national newspaper of Wales", although it has a very limited circulation in North Wales. The paper was published in broadsheet format until 2004, when it became a compact.

The Western Mail was founded in Cardiff in 1869 by John Crichton-Stuart, 3rd Marquess of Bute as a penny daily paper. Lascelles Carr (1841-1902), editor since 1869, bought the paper with Daniel Owen in 1877. Historically in South Wales the Western Mail has always been associated with its original owners, the coal and iron industrialists. Often this led to the paper being regarded with a considerable degree of enmity, especially during the strikes in the coal industry of the 20th century. This association between newspaper and its owner was so strong there is still a degree of distrust of the paper in South Wales.
