The Herald Democrat is a daily newspaper located in the twin cities of Sherman and Denison, Texas, in the United States, about 60 miles (100 km) north of Dallas and 10 miles (16 km) south of the Red River and Lake Texoma. It is owned and published by Stephens Media LLC. The Herald Democrat serves all of Grayson and Fannin County, Texas; parts of Collin, Cooke, Denton, Delta, Lamar and Hunt County, Texas; and part of Bryan County, Oklahoma.

The Herald Democrat was created on September 1, 1996, with the merger of the Denison Herald and the Sherman Democrat. It is the largest newspaper between the Dallas-Fort Worth market and the Oklahoma City market. The parent papers, both members of the Stephens Media Group, had chronicled memories of the Texoma area since 1879 in Sherman and 1889 in Denison. The paper maintains its main headquarters in Sherman, along with a bureau in the Denison paper's original office.

The Herald Democrat has a circulation of approximately 24,000 Monday through Friday, and about 27,000 on Sunday, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations. The paper does not publish on Saturday.
