History[edit] The paper was founded on January 28, 1868.[2] It was initially an afternoon paper, published Monday through Saturday with a Sunday morning edition beginning publication some time later. In 1940, the Eagle acquired the Reading Times, which was a morning paper, but they remained separate papers.[3][4][5] The staff of the two papers was combined in 1982.[6] In June 2002, the Reading Times ceased publishing, and the Eagle became a morning paper.[6][7] Author John Updike worked at the Eagle as a copyboy in his youth for several summer internships in the early 1950s, and wrote several feature articles.[8][9] In 2009, the newspaper switched to a Berliner format and laid off 52 employees in late April of that year.[10][11]


Sunday edition[edit] The banner on its Sunday comics section says "Biggest Comics Section in the Land",[12] although it used to be two full-size sections long. It carries half pages of Prince Valiant and Hägar the Horrible. As of 2012 it also carries the following comic strips: Dick Tracy Tarzan Non Sequitur Archie Garfield Shoe B.C. The Born Loser For Better or For Worse Zits Uncle Art's Funland Blondie Ripley's Believe It or Not! Grin and Bear It Frank and Ernest Pearls Before Swine Curtis The Phantom On the Fastrack Marvin Get Fuzzy Real Life Adventures Adam Marmaduke Mark Trail Peanuts Luann Sally Forth Beetle Bailey The Family Circus Hi and Lois The Wizard of Id Dilbert
