Founded in 1870 as a broadsheet called the Eastern Counties Daily Press, it changed its name to the Eastern Daily Press in 1872. It switched to the compact (tabloid) format in the mid-1990s. The paper is now owned and published by Newsquest. In 2022 Newsquest took over the newspaper's former publisher Archant, formerly known as Eastern Counties Newspapers Group.
