UPI's legacy of fair and reliable reporting dates back to 1907, when it was founded by E.W. Scripps as the United Press. It became known as UPI after a merger with the International News Service in 1958, which was founded in 1909 by William Randolph Hearst. Today, UPI is owned by News World Communications.
The company is based in Washington, D.C., and Boca Raton, Fla.
