The Times Union traces its beginnings to 1856, when the Morning Times was founded as a daily newspaper in Albany, New York. Following numerous name changes, mergers and transfers of ownership, William Randolph Hearst purchased the Times Union in 1924.
The Times Union is the leading news organization in New York’s Capital Region. The newspaper is widely respected for its focus on local news and watchdog reporting, particularly on state government and politics. It has won numerous state and national awards for its work on both print and digital platforms and has repeatedly been named New York’s Newspaper of Distinction by the state editors association. The Times Union also created Woman@Work, the area’s fastest-growing network of business women; it publishes several weekly papers and hosts numerous community events at its affiliated Hearst Media Center, as well as major regional events, including the Times Union Home Expo.
