HistoryEdit

The Herald was established as the Bedrock-Democrat on May 11, 1870.[2] Its founders were Milton H. Abbott, who had previously launched the Oregon Herald, and Lewis Linn McArthur.[3] In 1887 Ira Bowen and George Small purchased the newspaper for $2500. Bowen and Small published the Daily Democrat and ran the Bedrock Democrat as a weekly edition.[4] In 1929, the Bedrock-Democrat merged with the city's other daily paper, the Morning Herald, to become the Baker Democrat-Herald.[2] When the city's name was changed from Baker back to Baker City in 1990, the paper was renamed to Baker City Herald.[2] The Herald went from being published five days a week to three on June 1, 2009.[2]

As of 2018, the paper's publisher is Karrine Brogoitti and its editor is Jayson Jacoby.[1]
