The Tyrone Daily Herald is an American daily newspaper serving Tyrone, Pennsylvania, and region – northern Blair County and nearby portions of Centre and Huntingdon Counties. The newspaper has been running for one hundred and fifty-three years, the latter one hundred and thirty-four as a daily.
The Tyrone Daily Herald was founded as a weekly newspaper, the Tyrone Herald, on August 15, 1867, by H.R. Holtsinger (alternatively spelled Holtzinger and Holsinger; né Henry Ritz Holsinger; 1833–1905) and J.L. Holmes (né Jonathan Lorenzo Holmes; 1823–1894). In 1868, Holtzinger and Holmes took on a partner, Charles Sullivan Worrell Jones (1842–1905), as half owner. Shortly thereafter, in 1868, Jones purchased the interests of Holtzinger and Holmes. Jones served as the editor beginning in 1868. Holtzinger was a Brethren minister who, after selling his interest in the Herald, founded a denominational paper, the Christian Family Companion.
The Daily Herald became a daily publication on April 16, 1887.
