The Tri-City Herald is a daily newspaper based in Kennewick, Washington, in the United States. Owned by The McClatchy Company, the newspaper serves southeastern Washington, including the three communities of Pasco, Kennewick, and Richland.
The paper was founded in 1918 as the weekly Pasco Herald. In 1947, Glenn C. Lee and Robert Philip bought the paper, moved it to Kennewick and converted it into the area's first daily paper, coining the name 'Tri-Cities' as part of the paper's name. Lee and Philip sold the paper to McClatchy in 1979. After over 30 years as an afternoon paper, it became a morning paper in 1984. It added a Saturday edition in 1987.
It serves Benton and Franklin counties in southeastern Washington, and is read as far south as Hermiston, Oregon.
In 1950, striking workers of the Herald launched a morning competitor, Columbia Basin News, in Pasco. From 1950 until the summer of 1963, the Tri-Cities was one of the smallest U.S. markets with two competing daily newspapers. Columbia Basin News printed its last issue in 1963.
The Tri-City Herald is the only major English-language newspaper in Washington east of Yakima and south of Spokane.
