Ogden Standard-Examiner

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.  It was acquired by the Sandusky Newspaper chain of Sandusky Ohio in 1993. The first issue of the Ogden Standard was distributed on January 1, 1888 and the Ogden Examiner in 1904. The two papers were merged on April 1, 1920, creating the current nameplate.

Fitzpatrick, who started his career as Senator Kearns' secretary in 1913. The Tribune's motto, is "Utah's Independent Voice Since 1871." The publication was founded in 1870 as the Mormon Tribune by a group of businessmen led by former LDS Church members who disagreed with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' economic and political positions.
