Joe X. Roueche and Clint N. Brown, former owners and publishers of the competing Salisbury Daily Sun, soon bought the Post and moved the operation across North Main Street to occupy the second floor of the old Meroney Opera House. A fire destroyed the Meroney Opera House on the morning of May 12, 1912, and took every vestige of equipment and record of the Post. But the newspaper kept publishing, as the editorial and mechanical staffs traveled to Spencer and used the office of A.W. Hicks, publisher of a small weekly.
Meanwhile, Roueche and Brown began negotiating the sale of the Post to a group of investors led by James Franklin Hurley, a former owner of The Concord Tribune. The change in ownership became official on July 22, 1912, and the Post moved back to Salisbury and began publication in the Shaver Building at 110 W. Innes St. Hurley served as both editor and publisher. He bought out most of the other original investors by 1919.
The Post moved to its present location at 131 W. Innes Street, Salisbury, North Carolina in 1922. The Hurley family owned and operated the Salisbury Post until its sale to Evening Post Publishing Co. of Charleston, S.C., on Jan. 31, 1997.
In February 2014, Boone Newspapers Inc., purchased the Salisbury Post and formed Salisbury Newsmedia LLC.
Beginning August 11, 2018 the Salisbury Post changed its print publication days to Tuesday-Friday and Sunday, no longer publishing a paper on Mondays and Saturdays. At the end of 2018, long time Editor, Elizabeth Cook retired. Josh Bergeron is the current Editor.
On April 30, 2019, the Salisbury Post started to print and package the newspaper through a partnership with BH Media Group’s production facility in Winston-Salem.Address: 131 W Innes St.
