In October 1984, two conservative Ogden newspapers (The Intelligencer and The Evening Journal) dropped the Doonesbury comic strip because they objected to Doonesbury's coverage of Ronald Reagan.[5]

On January 30, 2018, it emerged that the company was the apparent high bid to purchase the bankrupt Charleston Gazette-Mail.[6] yet withdrew the bid on March 8, 2018.[7]

On January 1, 2022, Ogden Newspapers will take over Swift Communications, which has publications in Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California. [8]
