History and Foundation
This newspaper was founded in 1873 in the building of the Free Press of Detroit. During his career he has absorbed some other local publications such as the Detroit Tribune in 1919 and the Detroit Journal in 1922, as well as the Detroit Times which closed in 1960. Some of the properties of these other newspaper chains have been reused for other purposes, as is the case of the Times building that was used as a printing plant until 1975.
In 1985, The News merged with Gannet, an advertising company. The company that owns The Detroit News claims to have been the first newspaper group with a radio station, the 8MK, which began broadcasting in 1920 and is now known as CBS-owned WWJ. By 1947, the first television channel was also established in Michigan, known as WWJ-TV and now as WDIV-TV.
The News group entered into an operating agreement with its rival Free Press for 100 years in 1989. In it they combined the operativity of the business but keep the lines and editing staff separate. This resulting company is known as the Detroit Media Partnership (DMP).
