History

The Flint Journal was founded in 1876 during Flint's booming lumber years by Charles Fellows and Washington Irving Beardsley as a weekly newspaper[1] The Journal's main competitors at the time was the Wolverine Citizen, The Genesee Democrat and The Flint Globe. The paper was sold in rapid succession to Doctor Carman, who sold ownership in December 1882 to George McConnolly and other until the Journal was purchase by the Flint Globe' owner, H. H. Fitzgerald, and merged as the Weekly Globe and Daily Journal. The Booth Publishing Company purchased ownership of the Weekly Globe and Daily Journal in 1911. [2]

Change to tri-weekly

On June 1, 2009, the Journal and its sister papers, The Saginaw News and The Bay City Times, reduced publishing to three times a week—Thursday, Friday and Sunday, while increasing their interactive media capabilities. [3]The changes come after the three papers laid off 35% of their staff in March 2009.

The Journal has a daily circulation of 83,814 with daily readership of 174,620 and a Sunday circulation of 101,590, with readership of 227,679.
