History: The Daily Post was started in May 27, 2008, by Dave Price and Jim Pavelich.
They were the founding publishers of the Palo Alto Daily News in 1995. The first edition of the Daily News was eight pages, but it steadily grew. By 2005, the Daily News was averaging 100 pages a day and had editions in five cities. In 2005, Price and Pavelich sold the Daily News. After they left, the Daily News went downhill and it devolved into one small edition that comes out once a week.
In 2008, readers and advertisers convinced Price and Pavelich that Palo Alto and surrounding communities needed a newspaper like the one they used to publish. As fate would have it, when they began to look for a place to open an office, the Daily News had just moved out of its downtown home at 324 High St., abandoning Palo Alto. So the Post grabbed that space and began printing a few weeks later.
By 2011, the Post was the No. 1 newspaper in Palo Alto and the greater mid-Peninsula area, leading in page counts, advertising inches and circulation.
In January 2013, the Post moved to a larger space at 385 Forest Ave., also in downtown Palo Alto.
In March 2015, the Post became the only daily newspaper in Palo Alto when the Daily News cut its printing schedule to just one day a week.
The Post has a reputation for aggressive reporting. For more than two years, the Post successfully fought in court for public records that showed a Redwood City-based sewer district paid $1.8 million to settle sexual harassment claims. And the Post won top regional awards for investigative reporting in 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017.
