The Eagle, officially known as The Bryan-College Station Eagle, is a daily newspaper based in Bryan, Texas, United States. Centered in Brazos County, the paper covers an eight-county area around Bryan-College Station that includes Texas A&M University.
First published by attorney Richard M. Smith as the Weekly Eagle on October 26, 1889, it transitioned to a daily in 1913.
The Eagle was owned by the Evening Post Publishing Company from 2001 to 2012, when it was sold to Berkshire Hathaway to become part of its BH Media Group subsidiary. At that time, the paper's average weekday circulation in 2012 was 19,132.
Previously, the newspaper was owned by Belo Corp. from 1995–2001, Worrell Newspapers from 1988–1995, Harte-Hanks Communications from 1962–1988 and local ownership prior to that. As of 2020, Lee Enterprises owns the paper.
In May 2023, the paper announced it would decrease from seven print edition days a week to three starting June 20, and moving forward it will be delivered by the U.S. Postal Service instead of a newspaper carrier.
The Eagle has won multiple awards, including Texas Associated Press Managing Editors awards, as well as Newspaper Association of America circulation awards.
