Winona Daily News

The Winona Daily News delivers a HUGE audience! Each week we reach 81% of all adults in the market.

Capt. Sam Whiting made history on Nov. 20, 1855, when the steamboat skipper wrote in the first edition of the Winona Republican about the first time he laid eyes on Sugar Loaf, Winona’s iconic peak.

 That first edition was published before Minnesota achieved statehood and became the second-oldest continually published newspaper in the state. The predecessor to the Winona Daily News grew from weekly to daily in 1857.

 Many other newspapers came and went – and some merged to survive. The White family bought the Republican-Herald in 1926 and eventually dropped the party affiliation and renamed the newspaper the Winona Daily News on June 21, 1954.

 The Daily News first went online in 1995 as WinonaNet -- one of the first Winona organizations to go online when the Luminet project was launched in Winona.
