The Yorkshire Evening Post (often abbreviated to YEP) is a daily evening publication (delivered to newsagents every morning) published by Yorkshire Post Newspapers Ltd in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. The paper provides a regional slant on the day's news, and traditionally provides close reporting on Leeds United and Leeds Rhinos as well as the Yorkshire County Cricket Club team.
The newspaper generally has a liberal/centre left bias, unlike the Yorkshire Post which has a particularly conservative bias. Despite its title which implies the paper is Yorkshire wide it is a Leeds based paper, however is widely circulated in Bradford, Harrogate, Huddersfield and Wakefield as well.
The City of Leeds has two further widely circulated local papers, being the Wetherby News and the Wharfedale and Airedale Observer.
For many years the Evening Post produced a separate edition for South Yorkshire printed simultaneously in Doncaster. In 1970 that was converted into the now-defunct Doncaster Evening Post.
