The Opelika-Auburn News is a daily newspaper in Alabama, serving Opelika, Auburn, and the surrounding communities.


The newspaper began as the weekly Opelika Industrial News, on September 11, 1890.[1] On May 30, 1904, the newspaper began publication as the Opelika Daily News.[2] In 1968, Millard B. Grimes and investors purchased the paper, changing its name to the Opelika-Auburn News in 1969, and then selling it in 1977.[3][4] It was owned by the Thomson Corporation until 2000, when it was sold to Media General.[5][6] In the early 2000s, the News was a member of a coalition of newspapers which brought suit against Auburn University to uncover financial misbehavior by trustees.[7] In 2012, Media General sold most of its newspapers, including the Opelika-Auburn News, to Berkshire Hathaway.[8] Lee Enterprises purchased the newspaper in 2020.
