Sunday Empire News

The newspaper was founded in 1884 in Manchester as The Umpire. A penny newspaper, it was the first successful provincial Sunday newspaper in England. Owned by H. S. Jennings, the Umpire was subtitled "A Sporting, Athletic, Theatrical and General Newspaper", and focussed on sports and theatre news. The paper was renamed the Sunday Empire News in 1944, but in 1950 became the Empire News and the Umpire and in 1953 was back to being the Empire News. In 1955, the Sunday Chronicle was merged with the Empire News, and the paper's title became the Empire News and the Sunday Chronicle. Roy Thomson bought the paper in 1959, but he merged it into the News of the World in 1960
