The Daily Herald (Roanoke Rapids) is a community-focused multi-media company serving the Roanoke Valley of North Carolina and Lake Gaston with newspapers, shoppers, magazines and websites. The company's primary media is the newspaper, The Daily Herald, which is published Tuesday through Friday afternoons and Sunday mornings.

The weekly Roanoke Rapids Herald was founded in 1914 by editor and publisher J.T. Stainback. From 1929 to 1947 the newspaper was owned and edited by Carroll Wilson. The newspaper was purchased by Milton and James Wick – later Wick Communications - in 1947. In September 1948 the newspaper began publishing as a daily paper in the afternoon and a morning paper on Sunday with the name changing to the Daily and Sunday Herald. The company moved to its present location at 916 Roanoke Avenue in June 1957. The newspaper names were combined as The Daily Herald in 1998.

The company also publishes a weekly shopper, the Roanoke Valley SmartSaver. Other publications include Lake the Magazine which is published monthly and Living 50 Plus, a quarterly magazine. The company operates three websites: RRDailyHerald.com, RVLakeMagazine.com and RoanokeValleyWoman.com.
