The Trinidad and Tobago Express
(and the Sunday Express
) is one of three daily newspapers
in Trinidad and Tobago
. The Express
is published by the Caribbean Communications Network
(CCN) and is headquartered on Independence Square
in Port of Spain
. The newspaper commenced operations on June 6, 1967. The website for the Trinidad and Tobago Express
was first registered in 1997
and launched subsequently very soon thereafter.
With a considerable Trinidadian diaspora spread across the globe, the Trinidad and Tobago Express
news website, then known as the Internet Express
, grew quickly into one of the top visited websites about Trinidad and Tobago. Given the large audience of the website, with up to 10,000 hits per day, it has become one of the online centrepieces of CCN. In 2002
, newscasts of the television channel CCN TV6
, and its televised daily polls, were carried out using an integrated website of the Trinidad and Tobago Express
. That same year, the joint staff of the Trinidad and Tobago website also created an e-commerce venture online called the Express MarketPlace, which was later renamed CaribBuy in 2003
. In order to remain focused, a CCN New Ventures division was created within CCN to take control of the various websites.
newspaper is the second oldest of the daily Trinidad and Tobago newspapers.
