The Knoxville News Sentinel is a daily newspaper in Knoxville, Tennessee, United States, owned by the Gannett Company.


The newspaper was formed in 1926 from the merger of two competing newspapers: The Knoxville News and The Knoxville Sentinel. John Trevis Hearn began publishing The Sentinel in December 1886, while The News was started in 1921 by Robert P. Scripps and Roy W. Howard.[1] The two merged in 1926, with the first edition of The Knoxville News-Sentinel appearing on November 22 of that year. The editor from 1921 to 1931, Edward J. Meeman, later was sent to Memphis to edit the since defunct Memphis Press-Scimitar.[2]

In 1986, the News-Sentinel became a morning paper, with the other paper in Knoxville, the Knoxville Journal, becoming an evening paper. The Journal ceased publication as a daily in 1991, when the joint operating agreement between the two papers expired. In 2002, the paper dropped the hyphen from its name to become the Knoxville News Sentinel.


As of April 3, 2017, the News Sentinel's president is Frank E Rosamond Sr.[3] As of May 2017, its editor is Jack McElroy, formerly of the Rocky Mountain News[4][5] has won many national awards, including winning three 2008 Digital Edge Awards from the Newspaper Association of America for best overall news website, most innovative user-participation and best site design.[citation needed]
