Gannett Co. Inc. traces its origins to 1906, when founder Frank Gannett and his associates bought a half interest in upstate New York's Elmira Gazette. From that point on, Gannett continued to acquire and oversee multiple local newspapers along the Northeastern United States, and eventually throughout the country. In 1982, Gannett created USA TODAY, a national newspaper that approached content and design in a bold new way.
Early on, Gannett established a policy for local editorial autonomy and championed technological advancement at their media organizations—which expanded to their growing network of radio, television and cable stations. As a known leader in the invention and utilization of technology, Gannett continues to set industry standards with its digital and mobile products.
On August 5, 2014, Gannett announced it was splitting into two separate organizations. The former head of U.S. Community Publishing, Robert Dickey, was named to lead the new Gannett as its president and CEO.
