The Vallejo Times-Herald is a nearly-daily newspaper in the city of Vallejo, California.[1] It is currently printed six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday.

Luther Gibson founded the Vallejo Herald in 1922. Later that year, he purchased the Vallejo Times and merged the papers. He owned the paper until 1974, when he sold it to the Donrey Media Group.

On June 20, 1978, 113 of the newspaper's workers went on strike. They established a rival paper, Vallejo Independent Press, directly next door. In spite of widespread[specify] support and thousands of Vallejoans cancelling their Times-Herald subscriptions in favor of the Vallejo Independent Press, the strike and new paper folded in August 1984, no longer able to compete financially.[citation needed]

Since 1999, the Times-Herald has been owned by MediaNews Group,[2] who took control of the paper from Donrey.[3]

This newspaper is also known for being one of the three newspapers to receive a letter from the Zodiac Killer on August 1, 1969.
