The South Wales Evening Post is a tabloid daily newspaper distributed in the South West Wales area of the United Kingdom. The paper has three daily editions - Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire[2] and is published by South West Wales Publications, part of the Local World group.[2] The current editor is Jonathan Roberts.[3] As the name suggests, it had previously been an evening paper, but later moved to a morning daily.

Founded in 1893 as the South Wales Daily Post, the paper changed its name in 1932 to the current title.[4] Former journalists included poet Dylan Thomas, who joined from school in 1930 but left 18 months later to become freelance.

In August 2006, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulation figures, the South Wales Evening Post overtook the Cardiff-based South Wales Echo as the biggest-selling evening newspaper in Wales.[5]

Presently the Post is published six days a week by South West Wales Media, the company that also publishes the Carmarthen Journal, Neath Port Talbot Courier, Llanelli Star, and Swansea Herald of Wales.[2] The Evening Post produces a range of special features and supplements on entertainment, TV, motoring, property, employment and sport.[6]

In 2012, Local World acquired owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[7]
