The Herald became a daily in 1885, and since fall 1983 it has been produced 7 days a week. It was an afternoon paper until Apr 1985; since then, it has appeared in the morning. Operations were moved to a new $70-million plant in 1981. From the early days the Calgary Herald was a supporter of the pioneer ranching industry; this support has since expanded to include the area's oil and gas interests. The paper is often at odds with the views expressed in other parts of the country, and even with Alberta's other major newspaper, the EDMONTON JOURNAL. National awards have been won in news, photography and production.
