The Reno Gazette-Journal is the main daily newspaper for Reno, Nevada. It is owned by the Gannett Company. It came into being when the Nevada State Journal (founded in 1870) and the Reno Evening Gazette (founded in 1876) were combined in 1983.[5]

Speidel Newspapers bought the Gazette in 1939, and bought the Journal a month later.[6] Gannett bought Speidel Newspapers in 1977.[7]

The Reno Gazette-Journal is one of two dailies (the other being the Sparks Tribune) covering the Reno-Sparks metropolitan area, which is also served by the Reno News & Review, an alternative newsweekly.
