The Herald-News is a daily newspaper headquartered in Joliet, Illinois, United States. It serves the Joliet, Will County and Grundy County area, and is owned by Shaw Media.

History[edit]

The paper was founded in 1904 as "Joliet Herald." In 1913 its founder, Ira Clifton Copley, purchased the "Joliet News" a paper which was founded in 1877. In 1915 the two papers were merged producing the "Herald-News." In 2000, Copley Press sold the publication to Hollinger International (later the Sun-Times Media Group). In 2013, Sun-Times sold the Herald News to Shaw Media, parent company of the Northwest Herald.[1]

Distribution[edit]

The Herald-News is printed early at one of its parent-company's facilities in Chicago, driven to Northwest Indiana and distributed based on delivery region.
