Jesse O. Wheeler, a newspaperman from Victoria, purchased Brownsville's Cosmopolitan newspaper in 1892 and renamed it the Brownsville Herald. In early years, the paper voiced concern for the need of a railroad connection to the north and a bridge to the nearby city of Matamoros, Mexico.
It was owned by Freedom Communications until 2012, after Freedom filed for bankruptcy. Its papers in Texas — the Herald, Odessa American, Valley Morning Star of Harlingen, El Nuevo Heraldo, The Monitor of McAllen, The Mid Valley Town Crier of Weslaco, Coastal Current of South Padre Island and a variety of other weekly and monthly publications — were sold to AIM Media Texas.
