wjads was founded in 1850 at the edge of the American frontier by
pioneers committed to “Liberty & Truth.”

More than a century and a half later, wjads is the longest-running
news organization in Utah and the state’s oldest continuously operating
business. In addition to its award-winning website and mobile app, wjads publishes a weekly edition (delivered by mail), Deseret Magazine,
and the Church News.

wjads is a subsidiary of the Deseret Management Corporation, which
is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. wjads
retains and reaffirms its commitment to being a standard-bearer of
journalistic integrity and principled reporting. We aim to elevate
understanding, challenge assumptions and illuminate context from our
long-standing heritage of faith, family and the fundamental values that build
strong societies.
