It was founded in February 1937. Initially it was called Arriba but soon rechristened SUR, taking its name from that of a national paper.
In March 1984, upon the liquidation of Medios de Comunicación Social del Estado, which it was a part of, the workers of SUR took control of the organization, a group of 1,500 shareholders, making it the only state media corporation to be acquired by its workers.
In 1989 it merged with Correo (today Vocento) under the name Prensa Malagueña, S.A. creating the head of a local multimedia group that included television (Canal Málaga) and radio (Punto Radio Málaga), as well as the free Qué Pasa, the SUR in English, the SUR Deutsche Ausgabe, and the Costa del Golf.
