"The Herald" is a seven-day morning daily newspaper published in Sharon, Pennsylvania, covering Mercer County and the greater Shenango Valley area of Pennsylvania. It is owned by Community Newspaper Holdings Inc.

Printed at the "New Castle News" printing plant in neighboring Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, "The Herald" also publishes a twice-weekly newspaper, "Allied News", covering outlying areas of eastern Mercer County; and the "Hubbard Press", a weekly newspaper covering nearby Hubbard, Ohio.

"The Sharon Herald", a weekly newspaper, began publication April 14, 1864, founded by R.C. and James Frey, who converted it to a daily newspaper nearly 45 years later, April 12, 1909. The newspaper's office was washed into the Shenango River during a flood in 1913, but missed only four issues. "The Herald" merged with its main competitor, the "Sharon News-Telegraph", May 13, 1935. The "News-Telegraph" incorporated the old "Farrell News" (founded 1925) and "Sharon Telegraph" (a daily since 1893). The new newspaper kept "The Sharon Herald" as its name but production moved to the "News-Telegraph" building on South Dock Street.

The newspaper diversified during the mid-20th century, owning part of Sharon radio station WPIC from 1938 to 1959; purchasing four eastern Mercer County weeklies in 1965, eventually merging them into the twice-weekly "Allied News"; and founding a weekly newspaper in Hubbard, Ohio in 1997.

In 1970, "The Herald" dropped "Sharon" from its nameplate. The next year, it was bought by Ottaway Community Newspapers, a division of Dow Jones & Company. Outside ownership brought the first Sunday edition, in September 1990, and the launch of [] in May 1996.

CNHI, the current owners, bought "The Herald" March 29, 2002. In the fall of 2003, "The Herald" switched to morning publication; it had published in the afternoon since 1909. [ [ The Herald: About Us] , accessed February 3, 2007.]
