24/7 Wall St.: America's Oldest Brands

10. The New York Times

Industry: Newspaper

Year launched: 1851

The first edition of the New York Times was published on Sept. 18, 1851. The paper began publishing its Sunday issue in April 1861. After the paper’s acquisition by Adolph S. Ochs in 1896, the Times adopted its present motto, “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” On Aug. 14, looking to improve the paper’s digital offerings amid declining interest in the print product, The New York Times Company named Mark Thompson as its president and CEO. According to NPR, Thompson, formerly a BBC executive, was hired to help the paper increase digital sales, as the company hopes grow its digital platform amid print advertising revenue declines.
