|Founded||1875, as the Post|
The Courier-Post is a morning daily newspaper that serves South Jersey near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. While based in Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey, United States, it serves most of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties.
The fourth largest paper in New Jersey, the Courier-Post's main competitors are The Philadelphia Inquirer across the Delaware River in Pennsylvania, and the Burlington County Times and Gloucester County Times in South Jersey.
Established in 1875, the Post moved to Camden in 1879. It merged with The Telegram in 1899 to become The Post & Telegram. In 1926, The Post & Telegram and the Camden Courier consolidated under owner J. David Stern.
The merged paper was bought by the Gannett newspaper chain in 1959.
