The Modesto Bee is a California newspaper, originally founded in 1884 as the Daily Evening News and published continuously as a daily under a variety of names. Prior to its purchase by Charles K. McClatchy and McClatchy Newspapers in 1924, it merged in the same year with the Modesto News-Herald, adopting that name as part of a consolidation. In 1933 it changed its name to the Modesto Bee and News-Herald, and in 1975 abbreviated the name on its masthead to the Modesto Bee. Its current owner, is the descendant firm, McClatchy Company, an American newspaper corporation.

The Modesto Bee has about 150 employees and is delivered throughout central California, reaching places such as Manteca, Merced, Patterson and Sonora. It currently serves 70,000 morning subscribers and 80,000 on Sundays.[citation needed]
