  • The Times-Picayune is an American newspaper published in New Orleans, Louisiana, since January 25, 1837. The current publication is the result of the 1914 merger of The Picayune with the Times-Democrat; and was printed on a daily basis until September of 2012, when it went to a Wednesday/Friday/Sunday schedule. Since June 2013, the paper is printed as a broadsheet on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays and in a tabloid format on Monday, Tuesdays, and Thursday. The latter is branded as The Times-Picayune Street or TP Street and is sold only through newsstands and retail locations. The paper, together with the NOLA.com website, comprise the NOLA Media Group division of Advance Publications. The paper was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2006 for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina. Four of The Times-Picayune’s staff reporters also received Pulitzers for breaking news reporting for their coverage of the storm. The paper funds the Poe Award for journalistic excellence, which is presented annually by the White House Correspondents' Association.
