The Daily Post is a revival of the original Palo Alto Daily News, founded in 2008 by the Daily News’ founders Dave Price and Jim Pavelich.[1][2] The Post is published Monday-Saturday and distributed in more than a dozen communities on the San Francisco peninsula. The paper covers local news and carries reports from the Associated Press.

The Post was founded by Price and Pavelich, who sold the Daily News in 2005, in the Daily News’ original location, after the News lost its independence and moved from downtown Palo Alto to the outskirts of Menlo Park.[3] Former Daily News editor Diana Diamond, who was fired by the Daily News in 2006[4] and later a columnist at the Palo Alto Weekly,[5] was the first employee whom the Daily Post announced hiring.

The Post's website does not carry news stories and only provides information about the paper, such as its address and phone number. The philosophy of Price and Pavelich is that they will not post their stories online until they can find an online business model that makes as much money as a printed newspaper. Keeping their scoops in their print newspaper maintains reader demand according to them.[6] However, they do offer a service in which you can look at their archives for a fee.
