The Outlook is a newspaper published in Gresham, Oregon, a suburb of Portland in the U.S. state of Oregon. It was founded in 1911,[1][2] and is currently owned by the Pamplin Media Group.

It was named the Gresham Outlook from 1911 to 1991 and was published by H. L. St. Clair,[3] who incorporated the business as the Outlook Publishing Company in 1917. The paper was renamed simply The Outlook in 1991.[4]

The paper was purchased in 1960 by Lee Irwin and Walt Taylor,[5][6] and Irwin was its publisher from 1960 to 1982.[6] He was followed by Robert Caldwell for a relatively short period, with Steven J. Clark being named publisher effective April 4, 1983.[7] Robert B. Pamplin, Jr. purchased the paper in 2000.[8]
