The Post Register is a U.S. daily newspaper serving the Idaho Falls, Idaho, area, as well as Jackson, Wyoming, and West Yellowstone, Montana. It is owned by the Jerry Brady family and their employees.

History

In 1931, The local Daily Post merged with Times-Register to become the Post Register.

Jim Brady, entered the business in 1933. In 1941, Jim Brady's brother Robb entered the business. Robb Brady was given the position of publisher in 1977 when the previous publisher died.

In 1984 Jim Brady died and shortly thereafter his son, Jerry Brady, entered the family business. Jerry Brady was given the position of publisher in 1988 after Rob Brady retired.

In 1998, a number of family shareholders sold their interest in the company for a large profit to an Employee Stock Ownership Trust, and finally established employees of The Post Company as official stockholders of the business, the Brady family maintained enough stock, however, to maintain control of the company.

In 2002, Jerry Brady ran as a Democrat for governor of Idaho and named his friend, Roger Plothow, publisher. despite owning and running one of the largest newspapers in Idaho, Jerry Brady lost the election to Governor Dirk Kempthorne. After losing the election, Brady officially turned over the title of editor and publisher to Roger Plothow.

In 2005, the paper won the Scripps Howard Foundation's First Amendment prize for an expose on pedophilia in scouting.[1] Post-Register journalist Peter Zuckerman won the Livingston Award in the category of local reporting for his work on the same story.[2][3]

In 2006 Jerry Brady ran for governor of Idaho again and was defeated a second time, this time by C.L. Otter.
