In 1931, Decatur's two main daily newspapers -- the morning Herald, owned by the Lindsay family, and the evening Daily Review, owned by the Schaub family -- merged their operations. Both newspapers continued to publish separately while maintaining largely separate editorial staffs. The Lindsay-Schaub combine acquired other newspapers, including The Southern Illinoisan, the Champaign-Urbana Courier, the Edwardsville Intelligencer, the Metro-East Journal and the Midland Daily News, as well as Decatur radio station WSOY.
In 1979, Lee Enterprises purchased most of the Lindsay-Schaub papers, including the Herald and Daily Review. The papers were renamed the Herald & Review and continued to publish morning and evening editions. In June 1982, the evening edition was discontinued.
