The News Herald and Press & Guide Newspapers

The News-Herald was first established in Wyandotte in 1879. Colorful Downriver journalist William Mellus first established The Mellus Newspapers in Lincoln Park during the Depression era. Under The News-Herald name, the two newspapers merged in the mid-1980's, then adding a Sunday edition in 1990 and Friday publication (weekend entertainment news) in 2006. Today The News-Herald is the "Voice of Downriver."
