Welcome to the
Princeton Daily Clarion
The Princeton Daily Clarion, Gibson County's oldest, continuous business institution, celebrated its 169th anniversary in 2015.
Founded in 1846, the Princeton Daily Clarion has played a vital role in the Gibson County community, keeping readers up-to-date on current events, both at home and throughout the world. The Clarion's current circulation totals 5,330. Add to the Clarion's rich history the accomplishments of its sister newspaper, The Oakland City Journal, a 121-year-old weekly. Total production of the Journal takes place at the Princeton plant so that East Gibson readers are provided the latest news for their area.
The Oakland City Journal debuted in February 1893, first as a weekly and, after a short time, a semi-weekly. Currently, 500 readers subscribe to the Journal. Princeton Publishing is also home to the non-subscriber shopper, the Weekender. The free publication reaches 16,500 homes every Monday.
The Princeton plant is kept busy around the clock, utilizing two shifts of employees. In addition to its own newspapers and special sections, Princeton Publishing's presses are responsible for printing Mt. Carmel's Daily Republican Register, Warrick Publications and a host of other print jobs such as grocery inserts, real estate sections and special publications.
In 1979, the Clarion, Journal and their shopper publications were purchased by the W.J. McGiffin Newspaper Company, which later became Brehm Communications, Inc.
In 2016, the Clarion, Journal and the Weekender were purchased by Paxton Media Group.
