Originally founded by John Leng in 1877 as "The Evening Telegraph", it became Dundee's flagship local newspaper. Its first editor was William Fisher and originally was liberal and reformist in its editorial style. DC Thomson acquired the Evening Telegraph in 1905 where it began to adopt its current conservative and populist editorial style after it was acquired by DC Thomson.[4]

In the 1920s, the Evening Telegraph was renamed to as "Evening Telegraph and Post", the paper would continue to be printed under this title up until the 1980s when it was renamed to just the "Evening Telegraph" and is still printed under this title to this day.

By the 1950s, the Evening Telegraph became very popular with readers with seven editions of the newspaper being printed in a day.

In 2011, the Evening Telegraph had an extensive rebrand and by 2016, DC Thomson launched the "Weekend Telegraph" which is published each Saturday.

In 2021, the Evening Telegraph's website was amalgamated into a new website at The Courier following a restructure which focused on DC Thomson creating more online content as a result in the decline of newspaper sales.
