March marks the 125th anniversary of the media franchise William Randolph Hearst started and WGAL is proud to be part of the company. On Tuesday night in New York City, the Empire State Building lit up in Hearst blue in honor of WGAL's parent company. Hearst bought the San Francisco Examiner on March 4, 1887. The company has grown from that newspaper to a New York-based global media leader in 35 languages, reaching more than 100 countries. For more on Hearst's 125th anniversary, click here.
