The Standard-Examiner is a daily morning newspaper published in Ogden, Utah. With 63,000 subscribers, it is the third largest daily newspaper in terms of circulation in the State of Utah after the Salt Lake Tribune and The Deseret Morning News.[citation needed] It was acquired by the Sandusky Newspaper chain (Sandusky Newspapers, Inc.) of Sandusky Ohio on March 23, 1993.



Ogden's first newspaper began publication in 1869, but the lineage of the current Standard-Examiner dates from January 1, 1888, when the first issue of the Ogden Standard was distributed. The Ogden Examiner was established in 1904, and the two papers were merged on April 1, 1920, creating the current nameplate.

William Glasmann had become business manager of the paper, after moving to Ogden upon the failure of plans to build a new town on the south shore of the Great Salt Lake. He bought the paper in 1894. His descendants (Glassman/Hatch) still owned and edited the Standard-Examiner until 1993.

The Standard-Examiner maintained offices in the Kiesel Building in downtown Ogden until 1961, when it relocated to 455 23rd Street, a building originally constructed to serve as Ogden's National Guard armory. In 2000, the paper's offices and printing plant moved to a new production printing plant and a remodeled office building at Business Depot Ogden, the former Defense Depot Ogden.

Historically an evening newspaper, the Standard-Examiner switched to morning publication in 2000.

Top of Utah

The "Top of Utah" is used to refer to the "northern part of the Beehive State, Davis, Weber, Box Elder, Morgan, Cache and Rich counties."[1][2] This term was coined by Standard Examiner Publisher Scott Trundle in the mid-1990s[1] and used as in this example from a December 31, 2000 Ogden Standard-Examiner editorial as "the six-county Top of Utah region."[3]

Online archive

The Marriott Library at the University of Utah has begun digitizing early editions of the predecessor versions of the Standard-Examiner, including the Ogden Junction, the Ogden Herald, and the Ogden Standard.
