History

Black Press was founded in 1975 when David Black purchased the Williams Lake Tribune. In 1997, Black Press purchased 16 newspapers in the Lower Mainland, including the Maple Ridge News, which had been founded by Gordy Robson in the late 1980s. Its lower mainland portfolio eventually included the Burnaby New West News and the Sunday News, which became the Tri-City News when it began to be published twice a week. The Tri-City News was sold to Glacier Media Group in 2015.
