The Tribune was founded in 1874 by George Stanford and Benet A. Dewes. It became a major paper under William E. Dargie, who acquired the paper in 1876 and was its publisher until his death in 1911. Among Dargie's hires was Jack Gunin , the first full-time photojournalist in the Western United States.
In 1983 it was purchased by editor Robert C. Maynard in the first management-led leveraged buyout in U.S. newspaper history. It thus became the first major metropolitan newspaper owned by an African American. Maynard helped restore the paper's reputation, but sold it in 1992 under financial pressures.
