The Herald-News is a daily newspaper headquartered in Joliet, Illinois, United States. It serves the Joliet, Will County and Grundy County area, and is owned by Shaw Media.


The paper was founded in 1904 as "Joliet Herald." In 1913 its founder, Ira Clifton Copley, purchased the "Joliet News" a paper which was founded in 1877. In 1915 the two papers were merged producing the "Herald-News." In 2000, Copley Press sold the publication to Hollinger International (later the Sun-Times Media Group). In 2013, Sun-Times sold the Herald News to Shaw Media, parent company of the Northwest Herald.[1]


The Herald-News is printed early at one of its parent-company's facilities in Chicago, driven to Northwest Indiana and distributed based on delivery region.
