The Post-Bulletin is a daily newspaper based in Rochester, Minnesota. Published Monday through Saturday each week, it is the largest afternoon newspaper in the state. The Post-Bulletin also offers an exact replica of the print edition online to subscribers.

The Post and Record was formed by various newspaper mergers conducted by Amherst Blakely beginning in 1872 when he purchased the Central Record. He later purchased The Federal Union, creating The Record and Union. In 1892, he purchased The Rochester Post, creating The Post and Record. Amherst Blakely had co-founded The Rochester Post in 1859 with his brothers, but sold his interest shortly after to move to Chicago and edit The Chicago Evening Post. The Rochester Daily Bulletin was started by Archie Gove, who sold to Allen Furlow and Gregory Gentling in 1912, who sold the publication to Glenn Whithers in 1916. The Rochester Post-Bulletin was created when The Post and Record and The Rochester Daily Bulletin merged in 1925 with Whithers as owner and Clarence Blakely as business manager. The Withers family ran the paper from 1925 until Bill Boyne took over in 1979. As of 2013, the Post-Bulletin employs 150 people.[2]

The Post-Bulletin is owned by the Small Newspaper Group, which also owns three other news providers in the Midwest: The Dispatch, Quad Cities in Illinois, The Daily Journal, Kankakee, Ill. and The Times, in Ottawa, Ill. The four newspapers have an active online presence on their respective websites. View daily news, weather, Rochester and surrounding community information and events at www.postbulletin.com.
