The Valley News (and Sunday Valley News) is a seven-day morning daily newspaper based in Lebanon, New Hampshire, covering the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont.

Although the newspaper's offices and presses are in Lebanon, its mailing address is a post office box in nearby White River Junction, Vermont. The newspaper covers communities on both sides of the Connecticut River, which forms the state line.[2]

The paper was founded in 1952 by Allan Churchill Butler.[3] Shortly thereafter he sold the paper to James D. Ewing and Walter Paine.[4] Paine would serve as editor and publisher of the paper for twenty-four years.[5]

Newspapers of New England, a private company based in Concord, New Hampshire, bought the Valley News in 1981 and has owned it since.[6]

Editorial positions[edit]

The Valley News has editorialized in support of same-sex marriage.[7]
