The Lufkin Daily News is a newspaper that serves the city of Lufkin, Texas, United States. The newspaper was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1977 for Public Service for an obituary of a local man who died in Marine training camp, which grew into an investigation of that death and a fundamental reform in the recruiting and training practices of the United States Marine Corps.

The Lufkin Daily News was founded in 1906. In May 2009 it was purchased from COX Communications by Houston-based publishing company, Southern Newspapers Inc.[1]
