The Hamilton Spectator was first published July 15, 1846, as The Hamilton Spectator and Journal of Commerce. Founded by Robert Smiley and a partner, the paper was sold in 1877 to William Southam, who founded the Southam newspaper chain and made the Spectator the first of the chain. The Southam chain was sold in 1998 to Conrad Black, who in turn sold off The Hamilton Spectator to Sun Media. In 1999 the Spectator was sold for a third time to Torstar Corporation.
The Hamilton Spectator is currently published 6 days a week by Metroland Media Group, a division of Torstar. It services Hamilton, Burlington and surrounding communities Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Dundas, Flamborough and Glanbrook, as well as the Niagara communities of Grimsby and Beamsville along with Brant County and Haldimand-Norfolk towns such as Caledonia, Hagersville and Dunnville. The Spectator also serves Halton Region, as far east as Oakville, and as far North as Southampton.
