The "Las Vegas Review-Journal" is published in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. It is the largest circulating daily newspaper in Nevada, and one of two daily newspapers in Las Vegas (the Greenspun Media Group-owned "Las Vegas Sun" is distributed with it). It is the flagship publication of Stephens Media LLC.

The "Review-Journal" takes a libertarian editorial stance, particularly compared to the "Las Vegas Sun", with which it has a joint operating agreement that runs through 2040. In 2005, the "Sun" ceased afternoon publication and began distribution as a section of the "Review-Journal".

The publisher of the "Review-Journal" is Sherman Frederick.

History

The "Clark County Review" was first printed in 1909 and became the "Las Vegas Review" in 1926. In March 1929, the "Clark County Journal" began publication, and in July of that year, the "Review" bought the "Journal" and began co-publication as the "Las Vegas Evening Review-Journal". In the early 1940s, the owners of the "RJ" bought the "Las Vegas Age", which began publication in 1905 and was the oldest surviving paper in Las Vegas. The word "evening" was dropped from the name in 1949, after Donald W. Reynolds and his Donrey Media Group bought the paper. The "RJ" published a morning and evening edition from that point until the late 1980s, when the "Las Vegas Sun" began afternoon publication.

The paper signed on Las Vegas' third television station, KLRJ-TV, in 1955, later changing the calls to KORK-TV; it is now KVBC.

Reynolds died in 1993, and longtime friend Jack Stephens bought his company, renamed it Stephens Media and moved the company's headquarters to Las Vegas.

The "Review-Journal" entered into its first Joint Operating Agreement, or JOA, with the "Sun" in 1990, which was amended in 2005.

The newspaper has won the "General Excellence" award from the Nevada Press Association several times and has also won the "Freedom of the Press" award for its First Amendment battles from the state-wide organization.
