The LaGrange Daily News has been serving LaGrange and the residents of Troup County, Georgia and surrounding areas since 1843 when it was launched as a weekly newspaper called the LaGrange Herald.[2] The name was changed later to the Chattahoochee[3] and in the 1860s, The LaGrange Reporter.[4] After a merger of the LaGrange Reporter, LaGrange Graphic and LaGrange Shuttle in 1928, the combined publications became the LaGrange Daily News.[5]

LaGrange Daily News is a newspaper owned by Boone Newspapers, Inc. which owns community newspapers throughout the Southeast, Texas, Minnesota, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan.[6] Boone acquired the paper from Civitas Media in 2016.[7]

It is printed two times a week (Wednesday and Saturday), with on-line editions available Tuesday through Saturday.
