The Manila Standard Today is the fourth-largest broadsheet newspaper in the Philippines as of 2006. Initially established as the Manila Standard, it merged with another newspaper of record, Today, on March 6, 2005. It was the first newspaper merger in the Philippines.


The Manila Standard was founded on February 11, 1987 when the conglomerate owned by the family of businessman Manuel Elizalde established the publishing company Standard Publications Inc. In 1989, the group of companies owned by the family of Andres Soriano III bought out the Elizalde group and renamed the company Kagitingan Publications.

In June 1991, the group of businessman Alfonso Yuchengco bought into the company and spun off the publishing company. It was incorporated as Kamahalan Publishing Corporation. Kagitingan Publications was renamed Kagitingan Printing Press Inc., which continues to print the Manila Standard Today.

In 1997, businessman Enrique K. Razon Jr., chairman and president of the International Container Terminal Services Inc., acquired the shares of the Yuchengcos and bought out the Soriano group to become the sole owner of Kamahalan Publishing Corporation and Kagitingan Printing Press Inc.
