History

The paper was started in 1889 as a weekly publication called the Henry Bulletin, serving Henry County and Martinsville. The Bulletin increased its publication frequency, until it eventually became a daily paper in 1935 and was renamed The Daily Bulletin.

In a deal announced on March 31, 2015, the Bulletin and the Franklin News-Post were purchased from Haskell Newspapers by BH Media Group. Haskell Newspapers was a company privately owned by the Haskell family. The Haskell family bought the Martinsville Bulletin in 1948. With the culmination of the purchase, BH Media owns nine daily newspapers in Virginia.
