The Herald-Press formed in 1916 in St. Joseph from the merger of two other newspapers:
In 1916, uncle and nephew merged their operations.
The News-Palladium was formed in 1904 from the merger of two newspapers:
The News outperformed the Palladium, prompting Frank Gibson to sell his paper to the competing concern in 1904. Klock and company in turn sold it to Moore in 1910.
Withe 1910 and 1916 sales and mergers, all four predecessor newspapers were under Moore's control, but operated as two separate newspapers, one in each city. In 1919, Klock and two new associates formed incorporated Palladium Publishing Co., as a vehicle to purchase Klock's Benton Harbor paper back from Moore upon his retirement. They then purchased the St. Joseph newspaper in 1928, once again consolidating ownership, but not operating companies or reporting.
By 1965, operations had started to merge, with a shared publishing plant and advertising. The content also became common. The corporate structures were fully merged in 1970, and, the final change to a single masthead, The Herald-Palladium, occurred February 3, 1975.
