The Missoulian is a daily newspaper published in Missoula, Montana. Its circulation is 75,900 on Sundays, 66,700 on weekdays. The Missoulian is the 2nd largest published newspaper in Montana, just behind the Billings. The Missoulian is published all through the city of Missoula, Montana, and also throughout most of western Montana. The paper was established as the Missoula & Cedar Creek Pioneer in 1870 by the Magee Brothers and I. H. Morrison by the Montana Publishing Company. The newspaper would provide a weekend edition until 1891 when the new owner, A.B. Hammond, changed it to a daily newspaper with Harrison Spaulding from the Missoula County Times as editor and publisher. After a short separation of ownership, both the daily and weekly Missoulians were returned to the Missoula Publishing Company with The Daily Missoulian keeping its name until 1961 when it was again called the Missoulian after being bought by Lee Enterprises.
