History[edit]

In June 1812, the Trump of Fame commenced publishing as the first newspaper in what had been the Connecticut Western Reserve.[2][6] In 1816, this paper became known as the Western Reserve Chronicle, forerunner to the modern Tribune Chronicle. On April 14, 1883, the Chronicle commenced daily publication. Prior to this, the newspaper had been a weekly, publishing on Tuesdays.[2]

The Chronicle merged with The Warren Tribune on April 26, 1924 to become The Warren Tribune Chronicle. In 1977, the newspaper changed to its present name, and began publishing on Sundays. On November 2, 1994, the paper's online edition premiered, the first in the Mahoning Valley. The newspaper also became the first morning newspaper in Trumbull County, on July 6, 1999.[2]
