The Cannock Advertiser was founded in June 1878 by Alfred Withington. He set up a printing business at 71 High Green, Cannock and opened a stationers shop soon after. The business stayed in the Withington family for three generations, until it was sold to West Midlands Press in 1964. Miles and Iris Withington continued as directors for a number of years, although the newspaper was by this time printed in Walsall.
