The Weatherford Daily News is a five-day daily newspaper published in Weatherford, Oklahoma. The newspaper is owned by the Reid family, who also own the Vinita Daily Journal, the Perry Daily Journal, the Nowata Star, the Tri-County Journal and the Afton/Fairland American. Southwestern Oklahoma State University graduate James Craddock purchased the Weatherford Democrat, newspaper that he would rename the Weatherford Daily News in 1929. The Weatherford Democrat was established with the town in 1898.[2] In order to expand it into a daily newspaper, Craddock enlisted the help of Kenneth Reid, who purchased the publication in 1972. [1]
