1011. The Daily Prophet was originally staffed by a large group of Seers in the Middle Ages. It was used to provide quick and timely dissemination of both major and minor prophecies to wizard farmers and business owners, who used it to predict everything from the weather to changes in the business market. The Berwick Witch trials in the 1590s caused more demand for current news, and the Prophet gradually shifted their content to accommodate. Young Seers still provide daily horoscopes.
