LNP Media Group owns and publishes LNP, its renamed daily newspaper, and LancasterOnline, its online affiliate. Additionally, it publishes three weekly minor newspapers, Lititz Record, Ephrata Review and Lancaster Farming. The company also publishes "La Voz Hispana," a Spanish-Language periodical and "Fly" magazine. Both are monthly publications. The headquarters and printing operations for the daily newspapers, La Voz and "Fly" are located in the city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania and serve all of Lancaster County. However, it was announced on January 15th, 2015 that the printing operations would be moving out of the city to nearby Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. [2]

LNP Media Group is owned by Steinman Communications, which also holds Intelligencer Printing (one of the oldest commercial printing houses in the US), Lancaster County Weeklies (a 62,000-square-foot (5,800 m2) printing facility in Ephrata which publishes their weekly newspapers and does job printing of other weeklies), Delmarva Broadcasting Company (radio stations in Delaware and Maryland) and Steinman Coal in southwestern Virginia (which also leases oil and natural gas deposits). They joined with High Enterprises and Fulton Bank in jointly developing the Lancaster Convention Center (although Fulton withdrew before the project was completed) and they operate both the Pressroom Restaurant, and the Newseum. Steinman Enterprises is a corporation, closely held by descendants of Andrew Jackson Steinman, who purchased the Intelligencer in 1866.

The company also runs an internet media site, .

Intelligencer Journal

First printed in 1794 as the "Lancaster Journal," the Intelligencer Journal was the largest circulation newspaper in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It also was the oldest continuous newspaper in the United States of America that had not changed its name.

Lancaster New Era

The Lancaster New Era was founded in 1877 as a newspaper in Lancaster with the goal of taking the Republican state machine to task and ushering in a New Era in politics. In 1920, the New Era merged with another Republican newspaper, The Examiner. In 1923, Paul Block, Sr. bought the New Era-Examiner and aimed it to compete with the morning Intelligencer and afternoon New Journal, both published by the Steinmans. It failed and Block sold the then-renamed New Era to the Steinmans in 1928. The Steinmans merged the Intell and the Journal into the morning Intelligencer Journal, and published the New Era as an afternoon newspaper continuously on every day of the week except Sundays, until 2007 when the Saturday edition was eliminated and the content moved to the Saturday morning Intell.

On 26 June 2009, Lancaster Newspapers published the New Era as an afternoon newspaper for the final time, citing increasing costs and decreasing readership as reasons it merged with the Intelligencer Journal.[3] Before the merger, it had the largest circulation of any Pennsylvania newspaper in the afternoon newspaper market.

It won the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association's Sweepstakes Award four years in a row. The sensitive reporting on the tragic shooting of six girls at the Nickel Mine Amish School in eastern Lancaster County won numerous state and national awards, among them, the Pulliam National Journalism Writing Award and the Taylor Award for Fairness, given by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard.

The Intelligencer Journal is now co-branded with the New Era. Columns, comics and other syndicated content previously reserved for the afternoon edition now appear in the Journal.

Editorial stance

For many years, the Intell retained a center-left editorial stance, while the New Era was reliably conservative. This continued long after the Steinmans bought the New Era. As a legacy of this, for five years after the papers merged, it ran two editorial pages--one liberal, one conservative. However, on September 12, Lancaster Newspapers announced it would adopt an independent editorial stance and would no longer run two distinct editorial pages. As part of this change, the paper dropped most of its syndicated columnists.[4]


After months of research and focus groups and already having combined the staffs of its daily and Sunday newspapers,[5] in October 2014, the newspaper rebranded itself to become LNP with the slogan "Always Lancaster", and re-designed the paper to include a more visually-appealing format.[6]
