Las Cruces Sun-News, founded in 1881,[1] is a daily newspaper published in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

History[edit]

The Sun-News started in 1881 as the Rio Grande Republican and went through several mergers to become the Las Cruces Daily News in 1934. Another daily, the Las Cruces Sun, started publication in 1937 and bought the Daily News in 1939 to form the Las Cruces Sun-News. The paper changed ownership several times, most recently being bought by Gannett.[1][3] The paper is now part of the Texas-New Mexico Newspapers Partnership, a joint venture formed in 2003 between MediaNews Group and Gannett, with MediaNews Group the managing partner.
