The Lafayette Journal & Courier is a daily newspaper owned by the Gannett Company, Inc., serving Lafayette, Indiana, and the 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). In recent years, the paper has experienced several series of employee layoffs and high rates of turnover of reporters and editors.
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, which is partly a result of high staff attrition.
- In 2008 the Journal & Courier sponsored Sameer Mishra, the winner of the 81st Scripps National Spelling Bee.
