About Us

From the printing press to the Internet and beyond, the mission of Texas’ oldest newspaper has changed little since that first edition in 1842: Tell the stories of Galveston County — one day at a time.

Telling those stories has kept The Daily News alive and vital over the years. It's been a long, strange trip, and a wonderful one. Thanks for joining us.

Galveston Newspapers Inc. publishes The Galveston County Daily News and its companion website,

It also publishes a number of special sections and monthly magazines, including Daily News Homes, Galveston County Jobs, Coast Monthly magazine, Neighbors and Mainland Messenger. Commercial printing and other advertising services also are available.
