Indianapolis News

Former headquarters building for the News

The Indianapolis News was an evening newspaper published for 130 years, beginning December 7, 1869, and ending on October 1, 1999. The "Great Hoosier Daily," as it was known, at one time held the largest circulation in the state of Indiana. It was also the oldest Indianapolis newspaper until it closed and was housed in the Indianapolis News Building from 1910 to 1949.[1]:3-5

The Indianapolis News was an evening paper, and its decline matched a growing circulation of the morning newspaper, the Indianapolis Star. Prior to the closing, there had been a partial merging of the newspaper staff with the Star.

From 1959 through 1974, conservative writer M. Stanton Evans was an editor of the News. He was an editorial writer from 1959 to 1960, rising to editor at age 26. When he became editor, he was the nation's youngest editor of a metropolitan daily newspaper.
