The Grimsby Telegraph is a daily British regional newspaper for the town of Grimsby and the surrounding area that makes up North East Lincolnshire. The main area for the paper's distribution is in or around Grimsby and Cleethorpes. It is published six days a week (daily except Sundays) with a free sister paper (Grimsby Target) being published once per week.

The paper was founded in 1897 as the Eastern Daily Telegraph. In 1899, it was renamed the Grimsby Daily Telegraph, while in 1932 it became the Grimsby Evening Telegraph.[1] In 2002, it adopted its present name, and it moved from being printed at the paper's offices on Cleethorpe Road, with editions at 1pm and 4pm, to printing in Peterborough with only one edition which is available for sale by 7.30 am.

In 2012, Local World acquired owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[2]

The weekly sister paper that is free, circulates under the name of Grimsby Post and Cleethorpes Post respectively.
