The newspaper is published six days a week - Monday through Saturday.
The Tribune traces its roots to the founding of the weekly Independent in 1886. Another weekly, the Tribune, was founded at about the same time. The two newspapers were purchased and merged by A. H. Brown, who published the combined paper under the name Hastings Independent-Tribune. In 1894, the newspaper was purchased by Adam Breede, who changed its name to the Hastings Tribune. In 1905, it began daily publication under the name Hastings Daily Tribune; the weekly Tribune continued to be published. In 1937, the newspaper was sold to the Seaton family. After Fred Seaton's death in 1974, his son Don Seaton became the publisher of the Tribune. He held the position until his retirement in 2010.
