History[edit]

The Almanac was established in 1967 to serve the South Hills of Pittsburgh. Observer Publishing Co. bought controlling interest in The Advertiser and The Almanac in 1981. In 1990, the newspapers were converted from tabloid-size to broadsheet. The two newspapers merged into one, The Almanac, in 1998.
