Minnesota Newspapers

Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Minneapolis Times was a morning paper starting in 1889. It was purchased by the Tribune in 1905 and its name was used in various forms until 1948. Finally the Minnesota Daily Star began printing in 1920, and later became the Minneapolis Star, distributed in the evening. In 1982 there was a merger between the Minneapolis Star, an evening newspaper, and the Minneapolis Tribune, a morning newspaper published by the same company. The product of this merger was the Star Tribune.
