The Monterey County Herald, sometimes referred to as the Monterey Herald, is the major daily newspaper published in Monterey, California, and serving Monterey County. The paper is owned by MediaNews Group. In addition to its main office in Monterey, it maintains a satellite bureau in Salinas, California.



The Monterey County Herald is produced at Ryan Ranch on the Monterey Peninsula. It previously appeared as The Monterey Peninsula Herald, with editorial offices on Pacific Street in Monterey, California.

The newspaper was founded and long published by Colonel Allen Griffin, and its long-time editor-in-chief was Edward Kennedy. Kennedy, as an Associated Press correspondent, had won celebrity in the closing days of World War II by announcing Germany's surrender one day before that announcement was supposed to have been made. A small monument in Monterey memorializes him for having given the world an extra day of peace.

Later the newspaper was bought by Block Communications.

In 1992 the paper was acquired by the E.W. Scripps Company in exchange for the Pittsburgh Press, which Block merged into its own Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Scripps traded the paper, along with The (San Luis Obispo) Tribune, to Knight Ridder in 1997, in exchange for the Boulder Daily Camera.
