Although the newspaper's motto is "Serving Washington and surrounding communities since 1867," the paper's history goes back to the Washington Democrat weekly, founded 1863. The Democrat changed its name to Daily Times in 1955; on June 1, 1964, it merged with the Washington Herald (founded 1905) to form the Times-Herald, by now the city's only daily newspaper. On November 1, 1972, ownership of the paper passed from local families to Donrey Media Group, which held it until CNHI bought the Times-Herald in September 1998.[2]
