The News-Herald’s history dates back to the 1870s, when the Rev. George W. Owen established it in Wyandotte, MI. The Mellus Newspapers started in the 1920s, subsequently flourished for decades under famous publisher/editor William Mellus. The current News-Herald format was established under the Heritage Newspapers' brand in 1986, when the late industrialist Heinz Prechter brought the old News-Herald (based in Wyandotte, MI) and Mellus Newspapers (based in Lincoln Park, MI) from SEM Newspapers Inc. and combined them into a single Downriver publication each Wednesday. Heritage Sunday, today called The News-Herald Sunday, was added in the early 1990s.
