The Camera became a daily newspaper on March 17, 1891. The name Camera was adopted because our founders envisioned a publication with more illustrations than most newspapers of that time.
We’ve been honing our vision and changing to fit the needs of our community ever since. The Camera started as a morning daily, changed to an afternoon Monday through Saturday paper in 1893, and hit our stride as a morning daily again in 1981. Ours was one of the first local newspapers to publish online in 1996.
During the course of the Camera’s long history, we’ve been owned by entrepreneurs, families, and corporations. But the truth of the matter is, our heart and soul have always belonged to this community. We were, are, and always will be your No. 1 news source.
The Camera has delivered your news and supported our shared community for 124 years now. These are points of personal pride to us. And though we certainly don’t look the same as we did 100, 50 or even one year ago, our mission remains the same: To deliver essential, informed and relevant news to our readers and unparalleled business opportunities to our advertising clients.
It feels good to be another year wiser. We’re looking forward to the next 124.
