The Denton Record-Chronicle is the main newspaper for the city of Denton, Texas and Denton County. In 1899, William Edwards consolidated the Denton Chronicle and Denton County Record (founded 1892 and 1898, respectively) as a weekly newspaper. It began publishing daily August 3, 1903. The estimated daily subscription circulation in 2011 was 9,200, with a Wednesday circulation of 24,700 and a Sunday circulation of 12,500. In 2018, the longtime publisher of the Chronicle, Bill Patterson, purchased the newspaper from A.H. Belo Corporation, which had bought it from the Patterson family in 1999. Printing and distribution of the newspaper remained with Belo, and a content-sharing agreement continues between the Chronicle and the Belo flagship Dallas Morning News.The newspaper also prints and distributes a semiannual magazine, Denton Live, published by the local tourism bureau.
