- "Courier-Express" redirects here. There is also a newspaper in DuBois, Pennsylvania that goes by this name.
The Courier-Express was created in 1926 by a merger of the Buffalo Daily Courier and the Buffalo Morning Express. William James Conners, owner of the Buffalo Courier, brought the two papers together. The combined newspapers claimed a heritage dating to 1828. One notable part-owner and editor of the Buffalo Express was Samuel Langhorne Clemens, the writer also known as Mark Twain, whose tenure at the newspaper lasted from 1869 to 1871.
In August 1979, The Courier-Express was purchased by the Cowles Media Company, a publishing company based in Minneapolis, MN. After a change in corporate leadership, Cowles Media decided to close the paper in September, 1982. The September 19, 1982 issue was the last issue published.
