What began in 1857 as a four-page newspaper in the dusty streets of Sacramento, California has grown into a digital network spanning local markets from California to Florida, from Washington state to Washington D.C.

Today we find ourselves more connected and more nimble—and our role as truth-tellers and protectors of independent voices more vital than ever.

Over 150 years of growing stronger

It all started on February 3, 1857, when James McClatchy helped launch the company’s first newspaper in the wake of the California Gold Rush. While other papers of the time came and went, The Daily Bee—later renamed The Sacramento Bee—persevered through an independent approach to journalism and a commitment to quality.
