The Post was a national tabloid newspaper in the United Kingdom, owned by Eddy Shah. It ran for only five weeks in November and December 1988. Ian St John and Jimmy Greaves, then the hosts of an ITV football series called Saint and Greavsie, had a column in the paper.

The Post was produced at Messenger Newspapers, Warrington, UK. With Apple Macintosh computers and Quark Xpress software giving it a "what you see is what you get" page design, it had, for its short life, the most advanced production techniques. In addition to this, the pages were transmitted by phone line to the printshop, which gave extra lead time (no courier service).
