The Gloucester Citizen was, until going weekly in October 2017, a six-day-a-week newspaper in the county of Gloucestershire, England. It covers Gloucester, Stroud and the Forest of Dean. It was first published on 1 May 1876.[1] The current editor is Rachael Sugden. The current offices are based at St James House in Cheltenham, shared with the Gloucestershire Echo.[2]


The Gloucester Citizen was founded on 9 April 1722 as The Gloucester Journal.

Before the changed frequency, it had a Saturday edition containing the Weekend magazine. There was also a Forest of Dean edition of the newspaper which was released on a Wednesday. The Pink 'Un, focusing on the sport side of the county, was a supplement which came out each Monday with the newspaper and Citizen People focusing on the individual local communities also releases on Monday.
