The Detroit News

The Detroit News photo of The <i>Detroit News</i>
On August 23, 1873 James E. Scripps began publishing The Evening News, one of the first popular, low-priced evening newspapers in Michigan. The News specialized in short, local, human interest stories. Resolutely independent, it continuously championed political and business reform. In 1917 the enterprise moved to this building designed by Albert Kahn. By its centenary, The Detroit News had attained the largest evening circulation in America.

Marker painted in custom colors of gold on black in keeping with trim of the building. Certainly not standard.
