The Tribune is a daily broadsheet newspaper that covers San Luis Obispo County, California.
It was created in 1939 from a combination of three newspapers founded between 1869 and 1905, and was later acquired by the E. W. Scripps Company. Scripps traded the paper, along with The Monterey County Herald, to Knight Ridder in 1997, in exchange for the Boulder Daily Camera. The McClatchy Company took over the paper on June 27, 2006 when it acquired Knight Ridder, formerly the United States' second-largest chain of daily newspapers. Source
