History of Waterloo Region Record
The history of Waterloo Region Record coincides with the founding of the Daily News, also a daily newspaper, which was published in 1878, specifically on February 9 of this year. Its creation was given, thanks to the former preacher, and Methodist, Peter Moyer, who chose a printing press, which was located in the streets King and Ontario, which are found in the city of Berlin.
After several years of changes in the address, and in its name, it was established, in 1994, its name The Record, thanks to John Motz, who would be, at that time, its director.
At the beginning of its publications, its structure had 24 pages, where later, in the year 1950, it would turn to 48 pages, then by the decade of the 60’s it increased to 96 pages and, by the year 1970, it would have a total of 128 pages.
As of June 3, 2002, its publications moved from afternoon to morning hours.
On March 11, 2008, it was established its current name, which would be Waterloo Region Record, which meant the return of the name of the community, to its business card.
