In an era of chain ownership, the Republican-American is one of Connecticut's few independent daily newspapers and has been locally owned and operated by the same family for more than a century. The Waterbury American was the first newspaper published in Waterbury, Conn. Starting as a weekly on December 14, 1844, it went to daily publication on May 22, 1863. The Waterbury American stood alone in its field until 1881, when two weeklies were established: the Democrat and the Republican. The Republican became a daily in 1884 and established a Sunday edition in 1907. The Democrat followed in 1887, but competition proved overwhelming and it printed its final edition in 1946.
