The Kelowna Daily Courier has been a favourite newspaper of the Central Okanagan and the rest of the Okanagan Valley since 1904.
It is also one of British Columbia Canada's longest running daily newspapers.
The Daily Courier is owned by Continental Newspapers Canada Ltd., which also owns its sister paper the Penticton Herald.
The Courier covers local news, sports, business, community events, classifieds, entertainment news, weather and more. Inside there is also some national and international news along with whats going on in the world of sports.
This paper has a loyal following and is also always full of informative articles.
There are still many subscribers to this daily newspaper who like to wake up and go to their front porch and bring it in the house to read.
I like to purchase the paper on occasion as it has news and other important information that covers the entire Valley.
This keeps me up to date on everything I need to know in my little corner of the world.
I still like holding and reading the newspaper with a cup of coffee close by.
With everything being available online these days this paper is now accessible to people from all over the world with a click a button.
And this has made the Kelowna Daily Courier even more popular.
The Kelowna Daily Courier had its beginnings in 1904. A man by the name of R.H. Spedding named the paper the Kelowna Clarion initially.
A little over a year later, in 1905, the business was sold to George C. Rose. Mr. Rose is believed to have run the first commercial orchard in the Kelowna area back in 1892. He changed the name of the newspaper to the Kelowna Courier and Okanagan Orchardist after its purchase.
In 1908 because of more needed space the paper was moved to a new location. The original building still stands to this day and a Keg restaurant now operates out of it.
In 1938 an R.P. MacLean bought the paper and Mr.Rose was replaced as its publisher and editor.
Mr. MacLean changed the name to The Courier in 1939.
In 1946 the paper began publishing two times a week.
Thomson Newspapers purchased the business in 1956.
In 1957 the Kelowna Courier became a daily newspaper.
In 1999 the newspaper was sold to Horizon Operations Canada.
