Redding's first newspaper was the Shasta Courier, founded in the 1850s. Then, when Redding was incorporated, in 1887, the name was changed to the Redding Independent. On Oct. 17, 1938, the John P. Scripps Newspaper Group published the first edition of the Redding Record, which after a series of acquisitions became the region's dominant daily newspaper under the nameplate Redding Record Searchlight.
