The News Press & Gazette Company (NPG) is a media company based in St. Joseph, Missouri, wholly owned and operated by the Bradley family. It is presided by Brian Bradley and David R. Bradley, with Hank Bradley (retired), Eric Bradley and Kit Bradley serving on its Board of Directors.  All are descendants of family patriarch Henry D. Bradley and his son, David Bradley, Sr.

NPG's properties include daily and weekly newspapers in Missouri and Kansas, 14 radio and television Stations in California, Idaho, Oregon, Colorado and Texas. The NPG group generally concentrates on the Kansas City / St. Joseph area for their newspapers and the western US for their broadcasting properties.

The company traces it roots back to the St. Joseph Gazette which began publishing in 1845. The paper chronicled much of travel into the Old West along the Oregon Trail and California Trail. It was the only newspaper that was sent west on the first ride of the Pony Express. The Gazette eventually merged with the News-Press by publisher Charles M. Palmer. When Palmer died in 1949 Henry D. Bradley was co-publisher of both papers starting in 1939 and bought them outright in 1951. The Bradley family expanded the focus with St. Joseph Cablevision cable television in 1965. In 2011, the Bradley family sold the cable division to Suddenlink Communications. The Gazette ceased publication in 1988 when his sister the afternoon News-Press took its morning spot. The family kept the "Gazette" and "G" in the company name.
