Before The Houston Chronicle, we had the Houston Post. Founded in 1880 by Gail Borden Johnson, the Houston Post was the city’s major newspaper for well over a century. In April of 1995, The Houston printed its last edition after being purchased by the parent company of The Houston Chronicle.

Somewhat related, both of my grandparents worked for the Houston Post for several decades and retired from the company in the late 1980s.
