Administrative History

The Salt Lake Tribune (1870- ) is the largest-circulated daily newspaper in the city of Salt Lake City.

The Salt Lake Tribune was first founded in 1870, as The Mormon Tribune, by William Godbe, Elias L.T. Harrison and Edward W. Tullidge who were all former members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A year later its name was changed to Salt Lake Daily Tribune and Utah Mining Gazette which was soon shortened to The Salt Lake Tribune. In 1873 Frederic Lockley, George F. Prescott and A.M. Hamilton, purchased it and turned it into an anti-Mormon newspaper. However, in 1901 Thomas Kearns, a United States Senator, and David Keith secretly bought it. They eliminated the anti-Mormon overtones. After Keith died in 1918 the Kearns family bought out his share. In 1952 The Tribune entered into a joint operating agreement with the Deseret News and created the Newspaper Agency Corporation. In 2000 The Tribune was sold to Denver, Colorado-based MediaNews Group.
