BH (renamed on July 2, 2012; formerly known as Berita Harian) came into being on July 1, 1957 as the first mainstream newspaper in Bahasa Malaysia. Ever since then, BH has become a true chronicler of history for the country.

Its Sunday Edition is called BH Ahad (renamed on July 1, 2012; previously known as Berita Minggu) was launched on July 10, 1960. Throughout the years, BH has diversely moulded itself from a paper reflecting the traditional thoughts and aspirations to a vibrant medium where era of knowledge has become the primary resource of economic development.

The newspaper was printed in broadsheet format until July 5, 2008, when the newspaper chart a new era, with a new look and trendier compact version on July 6, 2008.

Moreover, it has evolved from just an ordinary daily to go on board in the digital platform namely e-paper, tablet, mobile phones and online edition allowing the readers to read the news in a simple, fast and compact way.

To stay relevant and to keep up with the tastes and lifestyle of the present generation, a total modification was made on July 1, 2012. The transition includes changing the 'Ekonomi' section to 'Bisnes', the pullout ‘Ratu’ to ‘Famili’ and ‘Rona’ to ‘Kembara’. Changes were also made in layout, typography, pagination which is more attractive and easy to read as well as highlighting the fact number, info graphic and interesting information. The new BH is also providing larger size colour photographs.
