Foundation and a bit of history
In 1985, the San Francisco Chronicle was founded by the then teenage brothers Charles de Young and Michael H. de Young, originally known as The Daily Dramatic Chronicle. It benefited from the expansion of the city of San Francisco and in 1980 was the newspaper with the largest circulation on the west coast of the United States.
Initially the newspaper’s headquarters was the Newspaper Row, San Francisco’s first skyscraper. Even though it was damaged in the 1906 earthquake, this building still exists and is considered a landmark in the city.
In 1965, there was a union with its main competitor the San Francisco Examiner. Thus was born the Joint Operating Agreement, under which the two newspapers distributed the daily publication schedule, keeping the San Francisco Chronicle with the morning. In this agreement it was considered that neither would grow at the expense of the other, so the Chronicle went on to maintain the Examiner.
It is currently owned by Hearts Corporation, which purchased it from the Young family in 2000. In the twenty-first century has had a decline in circulation at the national level.
