There are two major daily newspapers in Tucson: the Arizona Daily Star, a morning daily, and the Tucson Citizen, which publishes weekday afternoons and on Saturdays.

In 2005, the Star was sold by Pulitzer, Inc. to Lee Enterprises. The Citizen is owned by Gannett. The newspapers participate in a "Joint Operating Agreement" in which non-news, advertising, production and distribution operations are run by Tucson Newspapers Inc., founded in 1940.

The Star refers to local residents as "Tucsonans" while the Citizen calls them "Tucsonians."

In 1981, Star reporters Clark Hallas and Robert B. Lowe won a Pulitzer Prize for their stories about recruiting violations by University of Arizona football coach Tony Mason, which were proven untrue in a court of law. Mason won the lawsuit unanimously.
