Entrance to JN building in Porto.

Jornal de Notícias (JN) (English: "Journal News") is a Portuguese daily national newspaper. JN was founded in Porto on 2 June 1888, and has since become one of the most popular newspapers, especially after the Carnation Revolution.

Since the late 1990s, JN has provided several gifts as a way to retain and attract new readers. The newspaper could offer various gifts, such as collectible fascicles and cutlery.

After the Carnation revolution, JN was nationalized and later privatized in the early 1990s to the Lusomundo group. JN, along with Diário de Notícias, is nowadays owned by Controlinveste.

It is currently published in four editions: National, Centre, Minho, and South.

Its current editor-in-chief is Manuel Tavares.
