The Dominion Post was created in July 2002 by Independent Newspapers Limited (INL), by amalgamating two existing Wellington broadsheet newspapers; The Dominion a morning paper, that commenced on Dominion Day, 26 September 1907; and The Evening Post, an evening, that commenced on 8 February 1865. As a result of the amalgamation, The Dominion Post became the only pay-and-read newspaper in Wellington. Wellington has many free community newspapers (for example The Wellingtonian), albeit these may be owned by The Dominion Post or affiliated/owning companies.
INL sold The Dominion Post and all other New Zealand newspapers and most magazines in its catalogue to Fairfax Media in 2003.
