About Daily Herald

text size: AAA

In an era of change, the independent and locally owned newspaper is becoming increasingly rare. Paddock Publications, Inc., an independent publishing company, is an exception and proud of its history.

Hosea C. Paddock started the company more than 120 years ago with the motto, "To fear God, tell the truth and make money." Four generations of Paddocks built a chain of weekly newspapers into the Daily Herald, the third largest newspaper in Illinois.

The Paddocks have no plans to give up the reins. Their strategic plans include continued expansion in the growing suburban Chicago market and a strong commitment to the communities currently served.

The Paddocks see their publishing powerhouse growing well into the next century.
