A Little History

The Nevada Journal, originally known as the Nevada Evening Journal, was founded by G.A. and O.J. Benjamin – the Benjamin Brothers – in 1895. It went from being a daily newspaper to a weekly newspaper in 1988, when it was purchased by Partnership Press of Ames. It was purchased by the Omaha World Herald in October of 1999 and they sold it to Stephens Media Group, based in Las Vegas, Nev., in 2010.
