The Reno Gazette-Journal is the main daily newspaper for Reno, Nevada. It is owned and operated by the Gannett Company. It came into being when the Nevada State Journal (founded on November 23, 1870) and the Reno Evening Gazette (founded on March 28, 1876) were combined on October 7, 1983.[5]

Speidel Newspapers bought the Gazette on October 1, 1939 and bought the Journal a month later.[12] Gannett bought Speidel Newspapers on May 11, 1977.[7][13]

The Reno Gazette-Journal is one of two dailies (the other being the Sparks Tribune) covering the Reno–Sparks metropolitan area, which is also served by the Reno News & Review, an alternative newsweekly.
