The Anchorage Daily News is back. Wednesday afternoon, The Alaska Dispatch News announced on social media, it's changing back to the paper's original name.

The Anchorage Daily News published its first issue January 13, 1946. Nearly 70 years later, the state's largest newspaper was renamed on July 20, 2014, when it was purchased by the Internet-only news site, Alaska Dispatch.

The name change comes just weeks after former owner Alice Rogoff declared bankruptcy and courts approved the paper's sale to The Binkley Company LLC. 

The name change won't be reflected in the newspaper just yet. ADN says that won't happen until Sunday.
