Madera Tribune

The Madera Tribune is a newspaper in the city of Madera, California. Edgar Eugene Vincent founded the Madera Mercury on March 21, 1885. Another paper, the Madera Tribune, was founded in 1892. The two papers merged to become the Madera Mercury-Tribune in 1920. The Madera Mercury-Tribune was put into receivership in 1949. The assets were then purchased by Dean Lesher, who had purchased another paper called the Madera Daily News, founded in the 1940s. The combined paper was called the Madera News Tribune. After Lesher's death, Lesher Newspapers, Inc. sold the paper to U.S. Media, which then sold it to Pacific Sierra Publishing. Pacific Sierra Publishing was about to shut down the paper in 2003, when it was sold to then editor Charles Doud, who formed the Madera Printing and Publishing Company, Inc. in 2004. ()
