"The Palm Beach Post" is a major daily newspaper in Florida, serving Palm Beach County in South Florida, and the Treasure Coast area.

History

"The Palm Beach Post" of today has evolved since its beginnings as "The Palm Beach County", a weekly newspaper that was established in 1908. In January 1916, the weekly became a daily, morning publication known as "The Palm Beach Post". In all of the 90+ years of publication, "The Post" has been the leading source of news and information in Palm Beach County, serving readers, advertisers and the community.

In 1934, Palm Beach businessman Edward R. Bradley bought "The Palm Beach Post" and "The Palm Beach Times", the afternoon daily. In 1947, both were purchased by longtime resident John Holliday Perry Sr., who owned a Florida newspaper chain of six dailies and 15 weeklies. In 1948, Perry purchased both the "The Palm Beach Daily News" and the society magazine "Palm Beach Life".

In June 1969, Cox Enterprises, Inc., based in Atlanta, purchased Perry's Palm Beach and West Palm Beach publications and formed Palm Beach Newspapers, Inc. Cox was founded by Gov. James M. Cox, a former Ohio governor and the 1920 Democratic presidential candidate who built a media company that today includes daily newspapers; weekly newspapers, radio and television stations; U.S. cable TV systems, local Internet media sites and Mannheim auto auction locations.

In 1979, "The Palm Beach Times" was renamed "The Evening Times". Then, in 1987, "The Evening Times" merged with "The Post" to form a single newspaper: "The Palm Beach Post".

"The Post" today

Today, "The Palm Beach Post" has over three-quarters-of-a-million daily readers in print and online each week who rely on its ability to report accurate and interesting news about our community and the world. "The Palm Beach Post" serves readers in seven counties - Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Indian River, Hendry and Glades-and has reporters in six community newsrooms plus news bureaus in Tallahassee and Washington D.C.

Palm Beach Newspapers Inc. continues to publish "The Palm Beach Post", "Palm Beach Daily News", the "Florida Pennysaver" and "La Palma", a Spanish-language weekly newspaper. Each publication has a corresponding Web site.

The Palm Beach Newspapers Inc.’s portfolio of products —in print and online — reaches 812,900 adults each week. [2007 Scarborough Report, Release 2]
