Overview

The Enterprise was founded as a weekly newspaper about 1885 by Ed Steele and W.A. Blair. In 1888 Charles Farriss purchased the paper. Soonafter, he left the paper in the hands of his brother J.J. Farriss, a former editor of The Biblical Recorder, the newspaper of the North Carolina Baptist Convention. In 1885, the paper became a daily. 1885 (MDCCCLXXXV) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Saturday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ... 1885 (MDCCCLXXXV) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Saturday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ...

Recent history

In the early 1990s, the paper shifted from afternoon publication to mornings.

Longtime Publisher Randall B. Terry Jr. held onto his half of the company. The relationship between Terry and Paxton was testy. In 2000, Terry accused Paxton of trying to cut local content. Paxton sued Terry, alleging mismanagement.[2]


In June 2001, the paper cut 16.5 positions, including eight full-time jobs and two part-time jobs from the main newspaper. [3]


Terry died of cancer in May 2004. Soonafter, Paxton bought the remaining shares of the newspaper. Upon assumption of operations, Paxson fired the managing editor, the general manager, and laid off 20 employees after it closed ESP, a weekly entertainment newspaper. Mass firings also followed Paxton's purchase of The Herald-Sun in Durham, North Carolina in 2005.
