The Daily Bluff City, Elgin, Illinois' first newspaper, was launched in 1874.
It merged with The Elgin Daily News in 1876. The Elgin Courier-News was later created in 1925 from a merger of The Elgin Daily News and The Elgin Daily Courier, which was founded in 1884.
The Courier-News was purchased by what is now Sun-Times Media in 2000.
On Monday, December 13, 2010, the operations of the Elgin Courier News will officially relocate to our Meridian office in Aurora. This move will allow us to pursue other options with regard to the building that formerly housed the ECN in Elgin. Our editorial and sales employees will continue to be deployed in the communities they cover and serve by taking advantage of technology and equipment.
Going forward, you should direct any communications to the following address:
Elgin Courier News 495 Commons Drive Aurora, IL 60504
