The "Times-Union" was a widely circulated daily
newspaperin the greater Rochester, New York area for 79 years. It was published as an afternoon daily counterpart to the morning " Democrat and Chronicle" under the ownership of Gannettwhen it ceased operations in 1997. In that year the paper merged with the "Democrat and Chronicle", with which it had shared a staff since 1992.
The "Times-Union" began publication in 1918, when newspaper magnate
Frank Gannettmerged the local "Evening Times" and "Union and Advertiser" papers. Ten years later Gannett purchased the 100-year-old "Democrat and Chronicle", the paper with which the "Times" would ultimately merge. The paper later won a Pulitzer Prizefor covering the 1971 Attica Prison riots.cite web|url=http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F01E2DC1131F93BA15755C0A961958260|title="Rochester Times-Union Publishes Final Edition"|publisher=New York Times, Inc.|accessdate=2008-05-06] cite web|url=http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,787310,00.html?promoid=googlep|title="Thirteenth Paper"|publisher=Time|accessdate=2008-05-06]
