      A good paper and a great read for people from the area

      The Evening Times is a newspaper exclusive to Glasgow, established in 1876 this publication is sold and printed from Monday to Saturday. Available from mid-day. The interesting thing about Evening times is that unlike any other newspaper in Glasgow, this is sold in small stands in and around train stations and bus stations. Obviously it's still available to buy in shops but no other paper wither it be the Daily Record or the Scottish Sun or even the Glasgow Herald has it's own specific stalls in the city centre.

      Their slogan of "Nobody Knows Glasgow Better" is a fair one, dedicated to the city , it's an excellent newspaper with a very good level of depth to each and every story they write. Many stories within the paper may have been picked up by national newspaper but not given as much detail, so for people from the region this is the best source for detail and accuracy.

      Most articles are very well written and the paper also provides a range of services from Announcements to Classified to even Job vacancies. Much handier than trawling through national papers to find a few jobs in Glasgow when the Times has them all to see.

      They also give out many supplements, notably the "Times Out" magazine which is basically an entertainment guide of whats on in and around the city. And every year they give away the "Wee Red Book" a football book full of statistics and fixtures for the season ahead in Scottish football.

      I also like that many stories break in the morning and national papers miss them , but since the Times doesn't come out til later in the day, it can reveal many sotries exclusively.

      All in all this is an excellent tabloid newspaper.
