The Miner and News purchased the Reminder in 1960. In November 1973, Bowes Publishers purchased the newspaper and the name of the paper was changed again in 1977 to the Daily Miner and News. The Kenora Enterprise, which began publishing in 1996, was brought into the Daily Miner and News fold in July 2003.
