The Calgary Herald is a Canadian daily newspaper published in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It was first published in 1883 as The Calgary Herald, Mining and Ranche Advocate and General Advertiser. It is owned by the Postmedia Network. The Calgary Herald, was first published on August 31, 1883 in a tent at the junction of the Bow and Elbow by Thomas Braden, a school teacher, and his friend, Andrew Armour, a printer, and financed by a five-hundred- dollar interest-free loan from a Toronto milliner, Miss Frances Ann Chandler. It started as a weekly paper with 150 copies of only four pages created on a hand press that arrived 11 days earlier on the first train to Calgary. From February 1890 to August 1893 and December 1894 to September 1895, the weekly paper appeared as the Wednesday issue of the daily paper. Publication of the daily paper was suspended between 21 September 1893 and 13 December 1894. It was not until fall 1983 that it was published seven days a week. The Calgary Daily Herald's name was changed to the Calgary Herald in February 1939, and continued to be published as an afternoon paper until April 1985. Since then it has been delivered in the mornings.

The Edmonton Journal is a daily newspaper in Edmonton, Alberta. It is part of the Postmedia Network. The Journal was founded in 1903 by three local businessmen — John Macpherson, Arthur Moore and J.W. Cunningham — as a rival to Alberta's first newspaper, the 23-year-old Edmonton Bulletin. Within a week, the Journal took over another newspaper, The Edmonton Post, and established an editorial policy supporting the Conservative party against the Bulletin's pro-Liberal stance. In 1912, the Journal was sold to the Southam family. It remained under Southam ownership until 1996, when it was acquired by Hollinger International. The Journal was subsequently sold to Canwest in 2000, and finally came under its current ownership, Postmedia Network Inc., in 2010.
