Nevada became a state in 1864, when the Civil War needed gold and silver to help finances. The first Nevada newspaper sprang into being the following year. Current times and new media have brought online news to compete with printed versions. While daily newspapers still flourish, many people rely on the Internet to get their news.
The Nevada Appeal
Nevada’s oldest daily newspaper is The Nevada Appeal. It began in 1865, when it was called the Carson Daily Appeal. Ownership changed over the years; in 1947 it was sold to Arthur Suverkrup, who changed the name to the Nevada Appeal.
The newspaper is delivered six days a week in the mornings. Readership is over 25,000 daily and 35,000 on Sundays. It is the longest continuously operating business in Carson City.
The Nevada Appeal supplies its readers with information and news including:
