History[edit] The paper was founded on January 28, 1868.[2] It was initially an afternoon paper, published Monday through Saturday with a Sunday morning edition beginning publication some time later. In 1940, the Eagle acquired the Reading Times, which was a morning paper, but they remained separate papers.[3][4][5] The staff of the two papers was combined in 1982.[6] In June 2002, the Reading Times ceased publishing, and the Eagle became a morning paper.[6][7] Author John Updike
John Updike
worked at the Eagle as a copyboy in his youth for several summer internships in the early 1950s, and wrote several feature articles.[8][9] In 2009, the newspaper switched to a Berliner format and laid off 52 employees in late April of that year.[10][11] Sunday edition[edit] The banner on its Sunday comics
