The Lafayette Journal & Courier is a daily newspaper owned by the Gannett Company, Inc., serving Lafayette, Indiana and surrounding communities. It was established in 1920 through the merger of two local papers, the Journal and Free Press (established in 1829 under the name John B. Semans' Free Press) and the Courier (established in 1845).
With its change of format on July 31, 2006, the Journal & Courier became the first daily newspaper in North America to use the Berliner layout. The change lowered paper costs by 15%.
As of September 2008, average daily circulation is 33,223. Saturday circulation is 33,546. Sunday circulation is 39,343. By September 2010 this had fallen to an average daily (MON-SAT) circulation of 27,837 and a Sunday circulation of 36,177.
