The Jacksboro Gazette-News, the oldest business in Jack County, was founded in June 1880 by J.N. Rogers and his two daughters, Alice and Joanna. Joanna stayed with the newspaper for 72 years until her death in 1952. She missed working only three issues during that period. At the death of Rogers in 1919 J. Robert Dennis became publisher and the paper remained in the Dennis family until early 1970 when owners of The Jack County Herald Mr. and Mrs. Leigh McGee purchased it. The newspapers operate as twin weeklies, newspapers owned by the same company published in the same community but on different days of the week The Gazette-News on Tuesdays and The Jack County Herald on Fridays. Both are owned by Graham Newspapers Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MediaNews Group Inc. Founded: 1880
