Husband-and-wife team Ed and Mary Forry launched the publishing company in 1983, to provide their hometown with timely and insightful news, opinion and information about Boston's largest neighborhood. The Reporter newspapers have won a number of awards for excellence in journalism, including from the New England Newspaper Association and UMass Boston Center for Media and Society; the Dorchester Reporter has twice been named Best Neighborhood Newspaper by the Improper Bostonian magazine, and the Boston Phoenix labeled bostonirish.com "Boston's Best Source" for Irish news and information..

The newspaper is a companion with three other titles owned by Boston Neighborhood News, Inc.: the Dorchester Reporter, Mattapan Reporter and the Boston Haitian Reporter.
