The Reno Gazette Journal is a daily newspaper in Reno, Nevada. It is owned and operated by the Gannett Company.

History[edit]

The newspaper came into being when the Nevada State Journal (founded on November 23, 1870) and the Reno Evening Gazette (founded on March 28, 1876) were combined on October 7, 1983.[2]

Speidel Newspapers bought the Gazette on October 1, 1939, and bought the Journal a month later.[3] Gannett bought Speidel Newspapers on May 11, 1977.[4]

On April 16, 2019, an edition of the Nevada State Journal was found during the opening of a time capsule from 1872 in the cornerstone of a demolished Masonic lodge in Reno.[5][6]
