The Journal dropped "Daily" from its name and became The Providence Journal in 1920. In 1992, the Bulletin was discontinued and its name was appended onto that of the morning paper: The Providence Journal-Bulletin. After beginning online service in 1995, the Journal established projo.com in 1996. In 1998, the paper's name was shortened back to The Providence Journal.
