The Jersey Journal is a daily newspaper, published from Monday through Saturday, covering news and events throughout Hudson County, New Jersey. The Journal is a sister paper to The Star-Ledger of Newark, The Times of Trenton and the Staten Island Advance, all of which are owned by Advance Publications, which bought the paper in 1945.


Founded by Civil War veterans William Dunning and Z. K. Pangborn, the Jersey Journal was originally known as the Evening Journal and was first published on May 2, 1867. The newspaper's first offices were located at 13 Exchange Place in Jersey City with a reported initial capitalization of $119. The newspaper built a new office building on 37 Montgomery Street in 1874. Editor Joseph A. Dear changed the Evening Journal to its current name in 1909.[3]

The paper relocated again, in 1911, to a building at the northeast corner of Bergen and Sip Avenues. This building was demolished in 1923 to make room for Journal Square, which took its name from the newspaper. The Journal made its home at 30 Journal Square for the next 90 years.[4] Its weekly Spanish-language publication, El Nuevo Hudson, ceased publication after the February 26, 2009 edition.[5] The owners also ceased producing the paper version of the Jersey Journal in 2009. [6]

In December 2012, it was announced that the newspaper would sell the building and relocate to another location in Hudson County.[7] In August 2013, the paper announced it would move to Secaucus, which it did in January 2014.[8]

The Jersey Journal, flagship publication of The Evening Journal Association, covers New Jersey's Hudson County, a diverse, densely populated and exciting area with one of world's best views: the Manhattan skyline. The conveniently sized tabloid paper does community journalism right, as numerous awards from regional and state associations attest. Its focus on the highs and lows of everyday urban life gives it the edge in a media-saturated area.
