The Yukon Review is a twice-weekly central Oklahoma newspaper published Wednesday and Saturday and featuring community news and sports.[1] Established in 1963,[2] the newspaper is carrier-delivered and mailed to subscribers.[1]

The Yukon Review began publishing in 1963 as successor to the Yukon Sun.[3] The town had several previous newspapers; the Yukon Register, published from 1893, and the Yukon Weekly, from 1894, combined with the Yukon Sun in 1900.[3] The newspaper was known as the Yukon Sun through 1962.

In 2008, the newspaper was honored by the Yukon Chamber of Commerce as Yukon's "Large Business Of The Year."

Retired pastor and businessman John Miller has owned the newspaper since April 2008, and took over day-to-day operations as general manager in January 2015. Conrad Dudderar, who had been with the paper since May 1991, retired as news editor in June 2015.

Previous Yukon Review owners were Randel and Karen Grigsby, Jim and Betty Watson, and Conrad Dudderar.

The Yukon Review launched a new website in fall 2014 to complement its regular print edition.
