About The Daily Courier

The Daily Courier is the only daily newspaper serving Yavapai County, and is by far the best-read newspaper in the county. Since 1882, The Daily Courier has been a vital part of this growing quad-city community. Not all of the news is good news, and readers don't always agree with the opinions expressed, but year after year The Daily Courier's regular subscribers renew, or they invest 75 cents at the newsstand (Monday through Saturday) or $1.50 on Sundays, to read The Daily Courier every day.

The Daily Courier is the only daily paid subscriber newspaper in the county reaching 14,000 subscribers or single-copy buyers during the week and 15,000 subscribers or single-copy buyers on Sundays. At 2.3 readers per copy, that gives The Daily Courier a total daily readership of more than 42,500 people during the week, and 48,500 on Sundays!

The Daily Courier's Pulse Research survey indicates that 88.1% of newspaper readers prefer The Daily Courier; 87 percent use the Courier when they are seeking merchandise and services; and 68 percent choose the Courier when placing a classified ad. Our readers peruse the display advertisements at least occasionally more than 87 percent of the time, and they read the inserts at least occasionally 81.5 percent of the time. Our readers' average household income is $57,594 and that is greater than the market average by nearly $5,000.

The Daily Courier readers' daily investment is a clear signal that these pages are being read!
