It is not often a newspaper, or any business for that matter, can celebrate 150 years of consecutive service to its community, but now the Daily Herald can.
“Through all the diversity that newspapers have gone through over the past years, the Daily Herald has continued to cover the news of Provo and Utah County with professionalism and with great effort to keep our communities informed and entertained. We are proud, after 150 years, to still be a part of this thriving community,” said Jim Konig, publisher.
The paper, then known as the Daily Times, was first published Aug. 1, 1873, and was the first paper in Provo, a part of the Utah Territory. For perspective, the Daily Herald started printing just about three years before Custer’s Last Stand and two years before the Brigham Young Academy opened.
