HistoryEdit

The Herald traces its roots to the Prince Albert Advocate, which was begun in 1894 as one of several weekly newspapers serving the community at that time.[2]

In 1908, the paper became known as the Prince Albert Weekly Herald.[3]

In 1911, W.F. Herman, who later served as publisher of the Windsor Daily Star in Ontario, bought the Herald and switched it to a daily newspaper. Herman soon flipped the paper back to its original owners, H. M. Hueston and Allan Holmes.[3]

The paper celebrated its silver jubilee as a daily paper in 1936.[3]

The Daily Herald was purchased from Thomson Corporation by Hollinger Inc. in October 1995, along with its sister papers the daily Moose Jaw Times-Herald and the weekly Swift Current Booster. These three Saskatchewan papers were then sold to CanWest in 2000 and later to Montreal-based publisher Transcontinental in 2002.[4] In May 2016, Transcontinental sold its 13 newspapers in Saskatchewan to Star News Publishing of Alberta. Printing was re-located to Wainwright, Alberta, due to the associated shutdown of the Saskatoon-based printing facilities.[5]

Since May 2018, the Daily Herald has been owned by Folio Jumpline Publishing Inc., an employee owned company.
