Elgin Courier News
The Courier-News is a three-day-a-week newspaper, publishing Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. It is owned by the Chicago Tribune.
By far the oldest newspaper in northern Kane County, The Courier-News traces its roots to 1874 — nine years after the Civil War — when the Daily Bluff City started publishing in Elgin. Two years later, in 1876, the Elgin Daily News was founded .
Eight years after that, in 1884, the Elgin Daily Courier was founded.
Expanding up the Fox River Valley, the Copley Press bought the Elgin Courier in 1909. In 1925, Copley also bought the Elgin Daily News and combined the two Elgin papers into the Elgin Daily Courier-News. The first Courier-News edition appeared under that name on Jan. 2, 1926.
Today the Elgin-Courier focuses on local news, neighbors, sports, community events, business and jobs, and includes national and international coverage as well. Readers will also enjoy the added content of Dining, Good Eating, Health & Family and Homes. The paper covers Elgin, South Elgin, Bartlett, Streamwood, East Dundee, West Dundee, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Hampshire, Huntley Burlington and Gilberts.
