The Wanganui Herald (originally the Evening Herald) was first published by John Ballance as a daily newspaper on 4 June 1867. Ballance was prominent in local and national politics. He was leader of the first Liberal government and premier of New Zealand from 1891 until he died in 1893. The paper continued to be published until 1986 when a community newspaper with the same name replaced it.
