Administrative history

The Moose Jaw Times was established as a weekly newspaper by J. N McDonald in 1889, with the first edition printed on April 2, 1889. In 1904, it changed from a weekly to a semi-weekly newspaper. In 1906, the Moose Jaw Evening Times was founded and in 1923, the Moose Jaw Morning Herald was created. The morning edition was soon discontinued and the paper became the Moose Jaw Times-Herald.
