The News-Democrat & Leader is a twice-weekly newspaper in Russellville, Kentucky. It has been published since 1806, fourteen years after Kentucky became a state. Russellville is the county seat of Logan County.
The current title was formed with the merging of The Logan County News and The Democrat in 1911. Then in 1968, employees of the News-Democrat started a paper called The Logan Leader. A few months later, this was merged back into the original company, which published the papers under different names each week. In the 1990s, this was changed to a publication under the combined name of News-Democrat & Leader.
