The Herald traces its roots to the Prince Albert Advocate, which was begun in 1894 as one of several weekly newspapers serving the community at that time.
In 1908, the paper became known as the Prince Albert Weekly Herald.
In 1911, W.F. Herman, who later served as publisher of the Windsor Daily Star in Ontario, bought the Herald and switched it to a daily newspaper. Herman soon flipped the paper back to its original owners, H. M. Hueston and Allan Holmes.
The Daily Herald was purchased from Thomson Corporation by Hollinger Inc. in October 1995, along with its sister papers the daily Moose Jaw Times-Herald and the weekly Swift Current Booster. Those three Saskatchewan papers were then sold to CanWest in 2000 and later to Montreal-based publisher TC Transcontinental in 2002.
