The Sarasota Herald-Tribune is a daily newspaper located in Sarasota, Florida, founded in 1925 as the Sarasota Herald. It was owned by Halifax Media Group from 2012 to 2015, when Halifax was acquired by New Media Investment Group.[2][3] Along with Comcast, its primary media partner is SNN, a 24-hour local news channel telecasting from the Main Street building. SNN was founded by the Herald-Tribune in 1995 and was sold to LDB Media in January 2009. The current publisher is Patrick Dorsey and Bill Church is the executive editor.

The former headquarters was added to the National Register of Historic Places before it was torn down in 2010 to make room for a new Publix Super Market to open in November 2011. The new headquarters building was designed by Arquitectonica[4] and has won the American Institute of Architect's Award of Excellence.[5]

On April 18, 2011, Herald-Tribune reporter Paige St. John won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism for her series on Florida's insurance industry.[6] This was the first Pulitzer in the Herald-Tribune′s history, marking a "sustained commitment to excellence".[7]

The Herald-Tribune began charging for online access in 2013.[8]
