The Orlando Sentinel is the primary newspaper of the Orlando, Florida, United States region. It was founded in 1876. The Sentinel is owned by Tribune Company and is overseen by the Chicago Tribune; like its parent company, it has a conservative bias. As of 2005, the Sentinel's president and publisher was Kathleen Waltz; she announced her resignation in February 2008. Howard Greenberg, publisher of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, was named publisher of both the Sun-Sentinel and the Orlando Sentinel after Waltz left.[2]


From the early 1930s to 1965, the newspaper was owned and operated by Martin Andersen. It was purchased that year by the Tribune Company.
