The Times-Union began publishing newspapers in 1918.

In 1971, the newspaper won a [wikipedia]Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the Attica prison riot. The prize was for "Local General Spot News Reporting" and was awarded to John W. Machacek, who served as a reporter for the Times-Union from 1967 to 1983, and Richard Cooper.1

Due to decreased readership the Times-Union ceased production on June 27, 1997.2
