JSOnline.com is Milwaukee journal sentinel


JSOnline.com, Web site of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel


It was created in April 1995, when two proud and powerful papers - already owned by the same company - merged the best of their resources. Now, building on the traditions of The Milwaukee Journal and Milwaukee Sentinel, the newspaper has forged a new identity, a new mission.

One of only a handful of employee-owned newspapers in the United States, the Journal Sentinel is focused on providing the best possible coverage of local news, while reaching out far beyond the metro area's boundaries to put events around the world in context. The newspaper is a community of creative people working together, telling stories, anticipating the issues that will be important to the community while reflecting what it's like to live in this place, at this time.

The Milwaukee Sentinel is the oldest continuing business in Wisconsin. It was founded as a weekly in 1837 by Solomon Juneau, a fur trader, land speculator and Milwaukee's first mayor. Among its editors were Rufus King, a civil leader and visionary, and Christopher Latham Sholes, an abolitionist and inventor of the typewriter. The Journal Company bought the Sentinel from the Hearst newspaper chain in 1962.
