The Daily News is a daily newspaper based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It is published Saturday and Sunday mornings and Monday through Friday evenings.

The current newspaper can trace its roots to the Bowling Green Democrat founded in 1854. A rival paper, The Daily Times, was founded by John B. Gaines in 1882 and the newspapers eventually merged into the predecessor to the Park City Daily News; now named the Daily News. The newspaper is still owned by members of the Gaines family.[3]

When the paper was called the Park City Daily News, the name was chosen due to a nickname for Bowling Green taken from an 1892 speech by Henry Watterson. Watterson, there to commemorate Fountain Square Park as the city's first park, opined that Bowling Green might come to be known as the "beautiful park city." Local businesses widely adopted the nickname until the town of Glasgow Junction, about 20 miles north, changed its name to Park City, Kentucky, and the now-confusing nickname fell from local favor.[3]

The Daily News acquired The Amplifier, a local arts monthly, in 2007.[4]
