The Herald Democrat is a daily newspaper located in the twin cities of Sherman and Denison, Texas, in the United States, about 60 miles (100 km) north of Dallas and 10 miles (16 km) south of the Red River and Lake Texoma. The Herald Democrat serves all of Grayson and Fannin County, Texas; parts of Collin, Cooke, Denton, Delta, Lamar and Hunt County, Texas; and part of Bryan County, Oklahoma.

The Herald Democrat was created Sep. 1, 1996, when its owner at the time, Stephens Media Group, merged the Denison Herald and the Sherman Democrat. Both papers had deep roots in the Texoma area: 1879 in Sherman and 1889 in Denison.[1]

The paper is based in Sherman and has a bureau in historic downtown Denison

The Herald Democrat's daily circulation is 18,068 and 18,667 on Sunday, according to the current owner, Gatehouse Media.[2] The newspaper's website had 114,400 unique visitors and 734,400 page views in October 2016.[3]

In 2015, the Stephens Media newspapers were sold to New Media Investment Group, which is part of Gatehouse Media.[4]
