Quincy Newspapers, Inc. is a family-owned media company that originated in the newspapers of Quincy, Illinois.

The company's history can be traced back to 1835, when the Bounty Land Register was one of only four newspapers in all of Illinois. Over the next century, a number of mergers followed. In 1935, the Quincy Herald-Whig emerged, and it still operates under that name today. The company moved into radio in 1947 and began television broadcasts in 1953. [1]

Quincy Newspapers "currently owns 11 television stations, 2 newspapers, 2 radio stations and a High Definition Video Production company. QNI also operates KXLT under a joint sales and shared services agreement." [2]
