The Cincinnati Commercial Tribune was a major daily newspaper in Cincinnati, Ohio that folded in 1930.[1]

The Commercial Tribune was created in 1896 by the merger of the longstanding Commercial Gazette and newcomer Cincinnati Tribune.[2] Murat Halstead was a well-known editor of The Commercial and The Commercial Gazette in the 1860s-1880s.[1] A representative of John Roll McLean, owner of The Cincinnati Enquirer, acquired the paper in 1911, and continued to operate it as a Republican paper (as opposed to the Democratic Party slant of the Enquirer). The decline in Republican fortunes and the financial situation of the paper in general led to its close in December 1930.[1]
