50th anniversary in Lake Tahoe

The Tahoe Daily Tribune, a free daily in Lake Tahoe, California, can be traced back to 1958. It started as a paid weekly but moved to a free daily in 2007.

On June 26, 1958 Frank and Mary Chase founded the weekly, then called the Tahoe-Sierra Tribune. The Chases sold the paper to Scripps in 1963. In 1975 is was acquired by Reno-based Swift Newspapers, now Swift Communications.

On April 16, 2007 the Tahoe Daily Tribune went from a paid, broadsheet newspaper to a free, tall-tab format.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune is published from Monday through Friday. It also publishes a separate arts and entertainment magazine, called Lake Tahoe Action.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune covers the southern portion of Lake Tahoe in El Dorado County, California, and Douglas County, Nevada.
