  • Capitalize the in a newspaper’s name if that is the way the publication prefers to be known. Do not place name in quotes. Lowercase the before newspaper names if a story mentions several papers, some of which use the as part of the name and some of which do not. Where location is needed but is not part of the official name, use parentheses: The Huntsville (Ala.) Times.
  • Consult the International Year Book published by Editor & Publisher to determine whether a twoname combination is hyphenated.
