The Daily News is a daily newspaper in Jacksonville, North Carolina. It has served the city of Jacksonville, Onslow County and its surrounding areas since 1953. The Daily News was owned by Freedom Communications until 2012, when Freedom sold its Florida and North Carolina papers to Halifax Media Group. In 2015, Halifax was acquired by New Media Investment Group.[1]

It was a broadsheet-format daily until June 1, 2009, when it and two sister dailies, the Sun Journal and the Kinston Free Press converted to a berliner-style format. Since the format change all three papers are laid out and published in Jacksonville.
