Poughkeepsie Journal

The Poughkeepsie Journal is a newspaper based in Poughkeepsie, New York owned by the Gannett Company, which bought the paper in 1977. Founded in 1785 (though not a daily newspaper until 1860), the Journal is the oldest paper in New York state, and is the third-oldest in the nation.[citation needed] The Journal's primary coverage area is Dutchess County, though the entire Mid-Hudson Valley is covered in some form, along with some coverage of points south via the White Plains-based Journal News.
