The South Idaho Press was a U.S. daily newspaper (except Saturday and Sunday) serving Minidoka and Cassia counties (Minidoka County Cassia County) in south-central Idaho. The paper had a circulation of 3,850.[1] It was formerly owned by Park Communications, which was acquired by Media General in 1996.[2] It was one of the papers that was sold to Community Newspaper Holdings the next year.[3] GateHouse Media acquired the paper in 1998 and sold it in 2004 to Lee Enterprises, where it was a part of the Twin Falls Group along with the Times-News (Twin Falls, Idaho) and Elko Daily Free Press (Elko, Nevada).[4]

The South Idaho Press was a consolidation and successor of the Burley Bulletin, which began in 1904 and the Burley Herald.[5]

The South Idaho Press was merged with the Times-News in August 2008. The office and printing operation were shut down, with some of the editorial, advertising and circulation staff remaining as a bureau of the Twin Falls-based Times-News.
