July 7, 1845
The Detroit Daily News began publication.
The Detroit Daily News was published until 1873, when it was renamed the Evening News. In 1905, the Evening News merged with the Detroit Tribune (which had gone through a series of names from 1877 until the merger) and the resulting paper was named the Detroit News.
