The story of the Watertown Daily Times as a newspaper dates back to 1861, evolving from the weekly New York Reformer, which had been established in Watertown eleven years before. With the advent of the Civil War, and the necessity of getting news quicker being an urgent matter, a daily paper was created.

The original daily Reformer of 1861 was a four-page publication of about 1,500 circulation during the Civil War and less in the years following. It was edited from offices at the east end of the Paddock Arcade and moved into a new location on Arcade Street in 1861. The paper took its present name in 1870.

The Johnson family’s involvement with the Times began in 1904 when Harold B. Johnson joined the city staff at age 22.

Mr. Johnson became editor in 1919 and acquired the business in 1932. The newspaper, now in its fourth generation of family ownership, moved to 260 Washington Street in 1962.

The paper has the largest news gathering staff in the north country, and covers news in Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, Oswego counties. It is Northern New York’s leader in reporting and advertising in print and online.

“The printed word possesses substance. Newspapers seek to provide as news that which has authenticity and thereby will stand up in contrast to the babble of misinformation.” - John B. Johnson, editor and publisher, 1949-2002.
