The Orlando Sentinel is the primary newspaper of Orlando, Florida and the Central Florida region. It was founded in 1876. The Sentinel is owned by Tribune Company and is overseen by the Chicago Tribune. It has historically tilted conservative; it has only endorsed a Democrat for president three times since 1964--Lyndon Johnson in 1964, John Kerry in 2004 and Barack Obama in 2008.

As of 2005, the Sentinel's president and publisher was Kathleen Waltz; she announced her resignation in February 2008. Howard Greenberg, publisher of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, was named publisher of both the Sun-Sentinel and the Orlando Sentinel after Waltz left.[2]

History[edit]

From the early 1930s to 1965, the newspaper was owned and operated by Martin Andersen. It was purchased that year by the Tribune Company.
