Our History

Since March 4, 1887, Hearst has grown from a single newspaper into one of the world's most admired private media, information and services companies with over 360 businesses in more than 150 countries.

History of Hearst

On March 4, 1887, William Randolph Hearst placed his name on the masthead of the San Francisco Examiner as "Proprietor" for the first time. W.R. Hearst died in 1951, but his legacy, Hearst, has continued to grow and prosper. It is clear Hearst is a very different company than it was in 1887, but, in another sense, Hearst has not changed at all: Our company's mission is still to inform, entertain and inspire. Hearst is continuing a legacy of innovation—and a love of what’s next.
