History[edit] The paper was founded when the Summit Beacon and Akron Evening Journal merged in 1897. The Summit Beacon had been published since 1839 and the Akron Evening Journal had since 1897. In 1903 the Beacon Journal was purchased by Charles Landon Knight. His son John S. Knight inherited the paper, in 1933, on Charles' death. The Beacon Journal under Knight was the original and flagship newspaper of Knight Newspaper Company, later called Knight Ridder. Mark Cohen became publisher in the Fall of 2013 following interim publisher Mark Ficarra. Cohen replaced Andrea Mathewson, who replaced Ed Moss. The McClatchy Company bought Knight Ridder in June 2006 with intentions of selling 12 Knight Ridder newspapers. On August 2, 2006, McClatchy sold the Beacon Journal to Black Press, a Canadian company that owns over 100 newspapers, mainly weekly publications in British Columbia and Washington. The Beacon Journal is Black's only Eastern U.S. property and is the largest newspaper in the chain, which also includes the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and The San Francisco Examiner. On November 11, 2013, the Akron Beacon Journal printed its last paper in-house in favor of printing at The Repository in Canton, Ohio. The edition for November 12, 2013 was the first Akron Beacon Journal printed at The Repository. Headquarters Sheldon Ocker, who covered the Cleveland Indians for the Beacon Journal, was named the 2018 winner of the J. G. Taylor Spink Award.[2][3]
