The Box Elder County News was started in April, 1894 by publisher J.R. Hunter. His wife, Edith B. Hunter, became associate editor on September 12, 1896. The Hunters sold the paper to Charles Pasco and Hyrum Standing in 1898, at which time "County" was dropped from the name. In 1900, Solomon C. Wixom purchased Pasco's interest in the paper and later became managing editor in 1922.
