The East Oregonian (EO) is a daily newspaper published in Pendleton, Oregon, United States and covering Umatilla and Morrow counties.[2] The newspaper was established in 1875 by M. P. Bull, as a weekly.[3][4] In 1882, C. S. "Sam" Jackson purchased the EO.[4][5] Within a year it had become a semiweekly,[4] and in 1888, the paper was published every day except Sunday.[5] Jackson went on to become the publisher of the Oregon Journal in Portland.[4][5]

The newspaper is owned by EO Media Group, which prior to January 2013 was named the East Oregonian Publishing Company.[2] As of 2013, the paper is published Tuesday through Saturday mornings and has a circulation of 7,014.[6] The paper maintains a bureau in Hermiston.[2] The EO is the newspaper of record for Umatilla County.[7]

The company also owns The Daily Astorian, the Seaside Signal,[9] the Capital Press, Oregon Coast Today (Lincoln City, Oregon), and the Chinook Observer (Long Beach, Washington).[8]
