The Rhinelander Daily News is a newspaper based in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. The newspaper is published mornings, six days per week, from Sunday to Friday.[3] It is owned by Northwoods Media LLC.[1] The Daily News is primarily distributed in the Oneida County area. It published a monthly business-to-business publication called Business Watch, and Best Years, a monthly publication for mature readers.[3]


The newspaper can trace its origin to 1882. That year a newspaper called the New North began publication in Rhinelander.[3] In 1890, an Eagle River, Wisconsin newspaper called The Vindicator was former; it later became The Rhinelander News in 1910.[3] During World War I, the publishers of The News decided they wanted daily coverage of the war, so they began publishing daily in 1917.[3] The News purchased The New North in 1947.[3]

The paper was formerly owned by Scripps League Newspapers, which was acquired by Pulitzer in 1996; Lee Enterprises acquired Pulitzer in 2005.[4][5][6] In 2006, Lee sold the Daily News to local ownership.[7]
