The News Courier is a daily newspaper published in Athens, Alabama, covering Limestone County, Alabama. It is owned by Community Newspaper Holdings Inc.

Today's News Courier was created in 1969, when The Alabama Courier (founded 1892) and the Limestone Democrat (founded 1891) were acquired by Robert Bryan and merged. The combined paper was known in the 1980s as The Athens LC News Courier. Bryan sold his papers to Hollinger in 1997. When Hollinger dispersed of most of its papers, The News Courier was acquired by Community Newspaper Holdings.[1]
