In 1958, Byron Keebaugh founded Meridian Printing Ltd. and founded the Meridian Booster the following year in 1959. Keebaugh an early adopter of offset printing, introduced the technology to Lloydminster at a time when it was generally only used in larger newspaper markets like Edmonton and Calgary. The Booster was later sold to Sun Media. Following the founding of the Booster, Keebaugh also came to own numerous community newspapers including The Vermilion Standard, The Meadow Lake Progress, and the Bonnyville Nouvelle. In December 2016, Postmedia, the successor to Sun Media, sold the newspaper to the Lloydminster Source.
