Arthur Capper started the newspaper January 31, 1921. At the time Kansas City, Kansas did not have a daily newspaper while neighboring Kansas City, Missouri had three dailies -- the Kansas City Journal-Post, Kansas City Times and Kansas City Star.
At its peak in the 1960s, the daily paid circulation topped 34,000. It also operated KCKN-AM 1340 Radio. (See Wikipedia; "KCKN (defunct)" for station history.)
It published daily (except Sundays, Mondays, and major holidays). Near the end of its print publication, the paper converted from a daily to a twice-weekly publication. Since January 10, 2009, the Kansan has been an online-only publication. On September 19th, Nick Sloan, a Kansas City, Kan., resident, purchased the Kansan and is now the independent owner of the publication.
