The Lafayette Journal & Courier is a daily newspaper owned by the Gannett Company, Inc., serving Lafayette, Indiana and surrounding communities. It was established in 1920 through the merger of two local papers, the Journal and Free Press (established in 1829 under the name John B. Semans' Free Press) and the Courier (established in 1845).
