Founded in March 2001 by David Bentley and his daughter Caroline Wood, the subscription news service focuses on business and political news throughout the province.[2]

All articles are protected by a hard paywall, which prevents non-subscribers from viewing any content.[3][4][5]

As of 2013, the newspaper claimed to have over 7,000 subscribers and employed 15 paid journalists.[4]

The company launched its sister-publication allNewfoundlandLabrador in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador in 2016.[6]
