HISTORY

The Chicago
Chicago
Sun-Times is the oldest continuously published daily newspaper in the city. It began in 1844 as the Chicago
Chicago
Daily Journal, which was the first newspaper to publish the rumor, now believed false, that a cow owned by Catherine O\'Leary was responsible for the Chicago
Chicago
fire . The Evening Journal, whose West Side building at 17-19 S. Canal was undamaged, gave the Chicago
Chicago
Tribune a temporary home until it could rebuild. In 1929, the newspaper was relaunched as the Chicago
Chicago
Daily Illustrated Times.

The modern paper grew out of the 1948 merger of the Chicago
Chicago
Sun, founded December 4, 1941 by Marshall Field III , and the Chicago
Chicago
Daily Times. The newspaper was owned by Field Enterprises , controlled by the Marshall Field family , which acquired the afternoon Chicago
Chicago
Daily News in 1959 and launched WFLD television in 1966. When the Daily News ended its run in 1978, much of its staff, including Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Mike Royko , were moved to the Sun-Times. During the Field period, the newspaper had a populist, progressive character that leaned Democratic but was independent of the city's Democratic establishment. Although the graphic style was urban tabloid, the paper was well regarded for journalistic quality and did not rely on sensational front-page stories. It typically ran articles from The Washington Post

THE 1940S, 1950S AND 1960S

Among the most prominent members of the newspaper's staff was cartoonist Jacob Burck , who was hired by the Chicago
Chicago
Times in 1938, won a Pulitzer Prize
Pulitzer Prize
in 1941 and continued with the paper after it became the Sun-Times, drawing nearly 10,000 cartoons over a 44-year career.

The advice column "Ask Ann Landers" debuted in 1943. Ann Landers
Ann Landers
was the pseudonym of staff writer Ruth Crowley, who answered readers' letters until 1955. Eppie Lederer, sister of " Dear Abby " columnist Abigail van Buren, assumed the role thereafter as Ann Landers.

"Kup's Column", written by Irv Kupcinet , also made its first appearance in 1943.

Jack Olsen joined the Sun-Times as editor-in-chief in 1954, before moving on to Time and Sports Illustrated magazines and authoring true-crime books. Hired as literary editor in 1955 was Hoke Norris , who also covered the civil-rights movement for the Sun-Times.

Jerome Holtzman became a member of the Chicago
Chicago
Sun sports department after first being a copy boy for the Daily News in the 1940s. He and Edgar Munzel , another longtime sportswriter for the paper, both would end up honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame
Baseball Hall of Fame
.

Famed for his World War II exploits, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Bill Mauldin made the Sun-Times his home base in 1962. The following year, Mauldin drew one of his most renowned illustrations, depicting a mourning statue of Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln
after the November 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy .

Two years out of college, Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
became a staff writer in 1966, and a year later was named Sun-Times's film critic. He continued in this role for the remainder of his life.

THE 1970S

In 1975, a new sports editor at the Sun-Times, Lewis Grizzard , spiked some columns written by sportswriter Lacy J. Banks and took away a column Banks had been writing, prompting Banks to tell a friend at the Chicago
Chicago
Defender that Grizzard was a racist. After the friend wrote a story about it, Grizzard fired Banks. With that, the editorial employees union intervened, a federal arbitrator ruled for Banks and 13 months later, he got his job back.

A 25-part series on the Mirage Tavern
Mirage Tavern
, a saloon on Wells Street bought and operated by the Sun-Times in 1977, exposed a pattern of civic corruption and bribery, as city officials were investigated and photographed without their knowledge. The articles received considerable publicity and acclaim, but a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize met resistance from some who believed the Mirage series represented a form of entrapment.

In March 1978, the venerable afternoon publication the Chicago
Chicago
Daily News , sister paper of the Sun-Times, went out of business. The two newspapers shared the same ownership and office building. James F. Hoge, Jr. , editor and publisher of the Daily News, assumed the same positions at the Sun-Times, which also retained a number of the Daily News's editorial personnel.

THE 1980S

In 1980, the Sun-Times hired syndicated TV columnist Gary Deeb away from the rival Chicago
Chicago
Tribune. Deeb then left the Sun-Times in the spring of 1983 to try his hand at TV. He joined Chicago's WLS-TV in September 1983.

In July 1981, prominent Sun-Times investigative reporter Pam Zekman , who had been part of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team with the Chicago Tribune in 1976, announced she was leaving the Sun-Times to join WBBM-TV in Chicago
Chicago
in August 1981 as chief of its new investigative unit. "Salary wasn't a factor," she told the Tribune. "The station showed a commitment to investigative journalism. It was something I wanted to try."

Pete Souza left the Sun-Times in 1983 to become official White House photographer for President Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan
until his second term's end in 1989. Souza returned to that position to be the official photographer for President Barack Obama
Barack Obama
.

Baseball writer Jerome Holtzman defected from the Sun-Times to the Tribune in late 1981, while Mike Downey also left Sun-Times sports in September 1981 to be a columnist at the Detroit Free Press .

In January 1984, noted Sun-Times business reporter James Warren quit to join the rival Chicago
Chicago
Tribune. He became the Tribune's Washington bureau chief and later its managing editor for features.

In 1984, Field sold the paper to Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
's News Corp
News Corp
, and the paper's style changed abruptly toward that of its suitemate New York Post . Its front pages tended more to the sensational and its political stance shifted toward the conservative. This was in the era that the traditional Republican bulwark, the Chicago
Chicago
Tribune , was softening its positions, ending the city's clear division between the two newspapers' politics. This shift was made all but official when Mike Royko defected to the Tribune.

Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
later reflected on the incident with disdain, stating in his blog,

“ On the first day of Murdoch's ownership, he walked into the newsroom and we all gathered around and he recited the usual blather and rolled up his shirtsleeves and started to lay out a new front page. Well, he was a real newspaperman, give him that. He threw out every meticulous detail of the beautiful design, ordered up big, garish headlines, and gave big play to a story about a North Shore rabbi accused of holding a sex slave.

The story turned out to be fatally flawed, but so what? It sold papers. Well, actually, it didn't sell papers. There were hundreds of cancellations. Soon our precious page 3 was defaced by a daily Wingo girl, a pinup in a bikini promoting a cash giveaway. The Sun-Times, which had been placing above the Tribune in lists of the 10 best U.S. newspapers, never took that great step it was poised for. ”

Murdoch sold the paper in 1986 (to buy its former sister television station WFLD to launch the Fox network ) for $145 million in cash in a leveraged buyout to an investor group led by the paper's publisher, Robert E. Page, and the New York investment firm Adler ">'s own "Inc." gossip column with Kathy O'Malley. On December 3, 1986, O'Malley led off the Tribune's "Inc." column with the heading "The Last to Know Dept." and writing, "Dontcha just hate it when you write a gossip column and people think you know all the news about what's going on and your partner gets a new job and your column still has her name on it on the very same day that her new employer announces that she's going to work for him? Yeah, INC. just hates it when that happens."

In February 1987, the popular syndicated advice column "Ask Ann Landers " (commonly known as the "Ann Landers" column and written at that point by Eppie Lederer ) left the Sun-Times after 31 years to jump to the rival Chicago
Chicago
Tribune, effective March 15, 1987. The move sparked a nationwide hunt for a new advice columnist for the Sun-Times. After more than 12,000 responses from people aged 4 to 85, the paper ultimately hired two: Jeffrey Zaslow , then a 28-year-old Wall Street Journal reporter, and Diane Crowley , a 47-year-old lawyer, teacher and daughter of Ruth Crowley, who had been the original Ann Landers
Ann Landers
columnist from 1943 until 1955. Crowley left to return to the practice of law in 1993 and the paper decided not to renew Zaslow's contract in 2001.

By the summer of 1988, Page and Adler & Shaykin managing partner Leonard P. Shaykin had developed a conflict, and in August 1988, Page resigned as publisher and president and sold his interest in the paper to his fellow investors.

THE 1990S

In mid-1991, veteran crime reporter Art Petacque , who had won a Pulitzer Prize
Pulitzer Prize
in 1974, left the paper. Almost ten years later, Dennis Britton , who had been the paper's editor at the time of Petacque's retirement, told the Chicago
Chicago
Reader that Petacque's departure, which was described at the time as a retirement, was involuntary. "I had problems with some of the ways Art pursued his job," Britton told the Reader.

In September 1992, Bill Zwecker joined the Sun-Times as a gossip columnist from the troubled Lerner Newspapers suburban weekly newspaper chain, where he had written the "VIPeople" column.

In September 1992, Sun-Times sports clerk Peter Anding was arrested in the Sun-Times' newsroom and held without bond after confessing to using his position to set up sexual encounters for male high school athletes. Anding was charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault and possession of child pornography. In September 1993, Anding pleaded guilty to arranging and videotaping sexual encounters with several teenage boys and fondling others. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison.

In 1993, the Sun-Times fired photographer Bob Black without severance for dozens of unauthorized uses of the company's Federal Express account and outside photo lab, going back more than three years and costing the company more than $1,400. In February 1994, however, Black rejoined the paper's payroll after an arbitrator agreed with the paper's union that dismissal was too severe a penalty. At the same time, the arbitrator declined to award Black back pay.

In 1993, longtime Sun-Times reporter Larry Weintraub retired after 35 years at the paper. Weintraub had been best known for his "Weintraub's World" column, in which he worked a job and wrote about the experience. Weintraub died in 2001 at age 69.

Foster retired from the newspaper in 2012.

On November 28, 2005, Steinberg returned to the Sun-Times' pages after going through a 28-day rehabilitation program at a nearby hospital, and he gave readers his version of the events that led to his arrest: "I got drunk and slapped my wife during an argument."

In February 2007, noted Sun-Times columnist Debra Pickett quit upon returning from maternity leave. The reasons for her departure were differences with her editors over where her column appeared and the sorts of assignments being handed to her.

On July 10, 2007, newly appointed Editorial Page Editor Cheryl Reed announced: "We are returning to our liberal, working-class roots, a position that pits us squarely opposite the Chicago
