The Midland Daily News is a daily newspaper which serves Midland County, Michigan. The offices for the paper are located at 124 South McDonald Street in downtown Midland. Although the main offices are located in Midland, the paper is widely circulated around Midland County. The paper began in 1881 as the Midland Republican, and became the Midland Daily News on May 1, 1937.
The paper is owned by Hearst Corporation, which also owns other magazines and media outlets, such as the San Francisco Chronicle and the Houston Chronicle. According to Hearst, the newspaper was acquired by the corporation in 1979.
The newspaper also prints the school newspapers for Midland High School, The Focus, and Herbert Henry Dow High School, The Update. The Daily News was the last daily newspaper in the Tri-Cities left standing when the Bay City Times and Saginaw News cut back their print editions to three times a week in June 2009.
