A history of the Pioneer Press
St. Paul, Minn. — The St. Paul Pioneer Press is on the auction block once again. The paper is one of 32 in the Knight Ridder newspaper chain that was sold to the McClatchy Co. yesterday. McClatchy, which owns the Minneapolis Star Tribune, says it is turning around and selling the Pioneer Press, the state's oldest daily newspaper. John Finnegan, retired executive editor and assistant publisher of the paper, spoke with MPR's Cathy Wurzer about the Pioneer Press' history.
