Wikipedia: The Daily Telegraph
The Daily Telegraph is a broadsheet newspaper published in London by Telegraph Media Group and distributed across the United Kingdom and internationally. It was founded by Arthur B. Sleigh in 1855 as The Daily Telegraph and Courier. Since 2004, it has been owned by David and Frederick Barclay. The paper had a circulation of 523,048 in March 2014, down from 1.4 million in 1980.

It has a sister paper, The Sunday Telegraph, started in 1961, which had circulation of 418,670 as of March 2014. The two newspapers are run separately, with different editorial staff, but there is cross-usage of stories. Articles published in either may be published on the Telegraph Media Group’s http://www.telegraph.co.uk website, under the title of The Telegraph.
