About the Hannibal Courier-Post
Phillips Media Group, assumed ownership of Missouri's oldest daily newspaper in March of 2021.
The Courier-Post began printing daily in 1853, with a lineage that dates even earlier to various weekly publications in the region. In 1907, the paper's publisher Thomas B. Morse sold the paper to Lee Enterprises of Davenport, Iowa.
The paper was sold again to Stauffer Communications in 1969, which was bought by Morris Communications in 1995. GateHouse Media bought The Courier-Post in 2007.
