T he Moose Jaw Times was founded by J.N. McDonald as a weekly in 1889. The first edition rolled off the press April 2, 1889. As the community changed, so did the paper. In 1904, the paper went semi-weekly and in 1906, the daily Evening Times was established.
In 1920, the Times purchased the Daily News and, three years later, the Times Morning Herald was established. The morning edition was discontinued a few years later and the paper became the Times-Herald. The paper was in local hands until 1949 when the Thompson Newspapers chain purchased the paper. In 1995, it was sold to the Hollinger chain an in 2000, it was sold to the CanWest chain. In 2002, it was sold to Transcontinental of Montreal.
In June 2016, Roger Holmes, 100 per cent owner of Star News Publishing Inc., purchased the Times-Herald and moved to Moose Jaw from Alberta. The Times-Herald provides local news and sports every day and publishes Tuesday to Saturday, with a weekly supplement, Rural Roots South. It is a community newspaper at heart that provides more than 50 local stories and photos per week.
All employees of the Times-Herald live and work in Moose Jaw.
