Founded in 1937, the Houston Chronicle is the largest daily newspaper in the state of Texas and the third largest in the United States. Although it was initially a morning-only newspaper, the paper became a full-fledged daily in 1995. Today, the paper has a circulation of more than 200,000, making it the city's most widely distributed publication.

Aside from its extensive coverage of the city, the Houston Chronicle has long been a strong force in the political arena. Having its name changed from the Houston Post in 1995, the paper has become a leader in local politics. During the last several years, the paper has made a number of bold moves, including switching from a morning-only publication to a full-fledged daily and launching a multimedia ad campaign.
