The Las Vegas Review-Journal is published in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the largest circulating daily newspaper in Nevada, and Las Vegas’ only daily newspaper. It has a daily circulation of 198,000.

The Review-Journal, sometimes referred to as the R-J, takes a very libertarian editorial stance, particularly compared to the afternoon Las Vegas Sun, with which it has a joint operating agreement that runs through 2040. In 2005, the Sun ceased to operate an afternoon newspaper and began distribution as a section of the Review-Journal.

History

The Clark County Review was first printed in 1909 and became the Las Vegas Review as 1926. In March 1929, the Clark County Journal began publication, and in July of that year, the Review bought the Journal and began co-publication as the Las Vegas Evening Review-Journal. In the early 1940s, the owners of the RJ bought the Las Vegas Age, which began publication in 1905. The word “evening” was dropped from the name in 1949.

The Review-Journal entered into its joint operating agreement with the Sun in 1990.
