The Daily Herald is a newspaper based in Everett, Washington. It is owned by Sound Publishing, Inc. The paper serves as a major news source for residents of Snohomish County.


The Daily Herald was first published on February 11, 1901. It was purchased by the Washington Post Company in 1978.[2][3] It was previously owned by the Best family.[3] The Daily Herald's website,, was launched on January 5, 1997.[2]

For years, The Daily Herald was an afternoon paper.[3] It is now a morning paper.

On February 6, 2013, the Washington Post Company announced it was selling the paper to the Sound Publishing division, based in Everett, Washington, of Black Press, based in Victoria, British Columbia.[4]

Notable court cases

In March 1983, The Daily Herald lost an appellate court case in the State of Washington in which it sought to quash a subpoena allowing a judicial review of confidential material gathered for articles it had published in 1979 on the cult activities of Theodore Rinaldo, who had since been convicted on charges of rape, indecent liberties and assault.[5] The New York Times reported that the court had ruled that "criminal defendants could force reporters to reveal confidential sources if the information was crucial to the case" and characterized the loss as "a major defeat for the news media".[6] The Daily Herald took the Appeals Court decision to the Washington Supreme Court[5] in State v. Rinaldo 102 Wn.2d 749 (1984), which was heard en banc with the result that the subpoena itself was quashed on the basis that Rinaldo had not met the threshold requirements to compel such an inspection,[7] while upholding the Court of Appeals ruling in general.[8]
