History

The newspaper's roots can be traced back to 1843 and the Livingston Courier. [3] It was the county's first and only newspaper until Howell resident George W. Lee launched the Livingston Republican in 1855. In 1857, the Courier folded, was purchased by a Democrat and renamed the Livingston Democrat. That paper folded in 1890 and was bought by a group of Democrats, who ran it until 1928.

One year later, the Democrat and Republican merged to become the Livingston County Republican Press. In 1937, the paper shortened its name to the Livingston County Press. In 1993, the state designated the paper a registered historic site. On Sept. 7, 2000, two weekly newspapers, The Brighton Argus and Livingston County Press, merged and became what is currently known as the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus.

Gannett, which also runs the Lansing State Journal and Detroit Free Press, bought the newspaper from the HomeTown Communications Network in April 2005.
