History[edit] Richard Winfrey
Richard Winfrey
purchased the Spalding Guardian in 1887 and later purchased the Lynn News and the Peterborough
Peterborough
Advertiser; he also started the North Cambs Echo. He became a Liberal politician and campaigner for agricultural rights and the papers were used to promote his political views in and around Spalding, Boston, Sleaford
Sleaford
and Peterborough. During World War II Winfrey's newspaper interests began to be passed over to his son, Richard Pattinson Winfrey (1902–1985). In 1947, under the direction of 'Pat' Winfrey, the family's newspaper titles were consolidated to form the East Midland Allied Press (EMAP): this was achieved by the merger of the Northamptonshire Printing and Publishing
Publishing
Co., the Peterborough
Peterborough
Advertiser Co., the West Norfolk and King's Lynn
King's Lynn
Newspaper Co. and commercial printing sections at Rushden, King's Lynn
King's Lynn
and Bury St Edmunds.[2] The magazine division was founded on a hunch when the company's printing presses lay dormant between printing issues of the local papers. The staff gambled that a weekly angling publication would be a hit - and in 1953 Angling Times
Angling Times
was born. This was soon joined by another weekly heavyweight when EMAP bought Motor Cycle News
Motor Cycle News
from its founder in 1956 for a hundred pounds.[2] EMAP grew significantly in the late 1970s under the guidance of the extremely successful partnership of Sir Robin Miller and David Arculus.[3] In 1996 EMAP agreed to sell its 65 newspaper titles, including the 300-year-old Stamford Mercury, to Johnston Press
Johnston Press
for £111 million.[4] Scottish Radio Holdings was acquired by EMAP on 21 June 2005.[5] In 2006, EMAP sold its French division to Italy's Arnoldo Mondadori Editore.[6] On 27 July 2007, EMAP announced that it was undertaking a review of the structure of the group in response to receiving a number of unsolicited proposals to purchase parts of the company.[7] On 12 September 2007, EMAP announced that it had completed the disposal of its Australian consumer magazine division, Emap Australia for approximately £38m to ACP Magazines.[8] On 29 January 2008, EMAP completed the sale of its radio, television and consumer media businesses (EMAP Radio) to German company Bauer for £1.14bn.[9] The remainder of the company was taken over by Eden Bidco Ltd, a company incorporated for the purpose of the acquisition by its owners, the private equity investment group Apax and the Guardian Media Group in late March/early April 2008.[10] In March 2012, the company announced that it would be renamed Top Right Group, and that its magazines, events and data businesses would be separated into three standalone companies. The EMAP name would continue to be used for the magazines operation, which at the time accounted for around 18 percent of the group's turnover. The database business was renamed 4C Group, and the events unit was renamed I2i Events Group.[11] Then in October 2015 the company announced that the EMAP brand would be scrapped as all its titles move to digital-only format.[12] In December 2015 Top Right Group rebranded as Ascential.[13] The company was the subject of an £800m initial public offering in February 2016.[14] In 2017, Ascential
Ascential
sold 11 of its trade magazines to Metropolis International; Health Service Journal
Health Service Journal
was sold separately to Wilmington.[15] Operations[edit] Current publications include:[16]
