Bowling Green Daily News media bias rating is Lean Left.

The Park City Daily News traces its roots to the Bowling Green Democrat, originally the Gazette, which was founded in 1854. In 1882, John B. Gaines established the Daily Times. The newspapers later were merged into what became the predecessor to the Daily News.

The newspaper is still owned by the Gaines family. Pipes Gaines is co-publisher and president of News Publishing, LLC. Scott Gaines is co-publisher and Steve Gaines is editor.

A lot of people ask why a paper based in Bowling Green would still bear the name "Park City," which is the name of a town about 20 miles to the north.

The Park City Daily News owes its name to a speech by noted Louisville editor Henry Watterson at Bowling Green's Fountain Square Park in 1892. Watterson told the crowd gathered to commemorate the city's first park that Bowling Green one day might be known as the "beautiful park city."

The Barren County city of Park City was named Glasgow Junction at the time and there was a pleasant ring to the phrase "park city", which soon began appearing in the names of various businesses.

It was only natural that the late John B. Gaines join his fellow businessmen and include the phrase in naming his newspaper. Then came the establishment of Park City in Barren County and newcomers became confused. Merchants began to refrain from using "park city" and today only the Daily News still pays tribute to its heritage by using "park city" on its front page.

Longtime subscribers still refer to the newspaper as the "park city." The newspaper today has grown to cover a six-county region, with its primary emphasis on Warren County. It has more than 125 employees and publishes seven days a week -- Monday through Friday in the afternoon and in the morning on the weekend.
