Asbury Park Press (Asbury Park, NJ)


The Asbury Park Press was founded in 1879 as the Shore Press by local pharmacist-turned-publisher Hugh S. Kinmonth. The Press first achieved success as a weekly newspaper serving the shore communities. In 1895, Dr. Kinmonth sold the newspaper to his nephew, J. Lyle Kinmonth, who began publishing the newspaper as a daily under the names The Daily Press and The Sunday Press. The newspaper prospered under Kinmonth's guidance and grew to be the dominant daily newspaper in the market. Each successive publisher in the Press' long history has upheld the same high journalistic standards as its founder. Now, under the leadership of the Gannett Corporation, the Asbury Park Press is positioned to take its place as New Jersey's premier daily and Sunday newspaper.When the Asbury Park Press joined the Gannett corporate family in 1997, they took their place among an elite roster of companies comprising one of the largest news, information and communications organizations in the nation.
