Taiwan News was founded 6 June 1949 by James Wei as China News, offering news reports and editorials printed on a stencil press. At the time it was the only English-language daily newspaper in Taiwan. In 1960 the newspaper switched to block printing in a full-size page format.

In 1998 publication of the newspaper was taken over by Luis Ko, the then-CEO of I-Mei Foods, and the paper's title was changed to Taiwan News.
On 28 February 2015, the news agency released the last print edition of its newspaper and switched to an all-digital format. It is now published online in both English and Mandarin versions.
