The Daily Mail was founded in 1914 by former Alaska Gov. Walter Clark and remained the property of his heirs until 1987, when Thomson Newspapers purchased it. In 1998, Thomson sold the Daily Mail to the Denver-based MediaNews Group. Then, in May 2004, MediaNews sold its economic interest in Charleston Newspapers to the Daily Gazette Company, the owners of the morning newspaper. The new owners almost immediately reduced the staff by a large margin and canceled its Saturday edition. Several former staff members joined the staff of the West Virginia Record or the State Journal. The West Virginia Record is a weekly legal publication distributed in the state of West Virginia. ...

The Daily Mail now publishes Monday through Friday afternoons. On weekend mornings the Gazette staff publishes the combined Saturday Gazette-Mail and Sunday Gazette-Mail. Saturday's paper features two editorial pages, one from the Gazette editors and one from the Daily Mail editors, and comics pages from both newspapers.

The Daily Mail has won awards in many fields. J.D. Maurice, its editor of many years until his retirement in 1978, won the Sigma Delta Chi award for editorial writing in 1958 and the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished editorial writing in 1975.
The newspaper's motto, as chosen by Gov. Clark, is "Without, or With, Offence to Friends or Foes, I Sketch Your World Exactly as It Goes."
