Nathan Cole Jr. and Thomas Gardiner first published the Los Angeles Times on Dec. 4, 1881, and its original name was the Los Angeles Daily Times. When the founders were unable to pay the bill for printing the newspaper, they turned it over to Mirror Printing and Book Bindery as payment for the debt. In 1886, its publishers dropped the word "Daily" from its name, and it officially became the Los Angeles Times.
The Tribune Company purchased the Los Angeles Times in 2000 as part of its acquisition of the Times Mirror Company. The Tribune Company also owns the Chicago Tribune.
