The Racine Journal-News was a daily afternoon newspaper based in Racine, Wisconsin, published by the Journal Printing Company. The newspaper was created in 1912 when the Journal Printing Company purchased the Racine News and merged it with the Racine Daily Journal. The first issue of the Journal-News was published on Monday, January 8, 1912. In 1932, the Journal Printing Company merged with the Call Publishing Company, which published the Racine Times-Call, and the two papers were merged into the Racine Journal Times. The last issue of the Journal-News was printed on Saturday, June 25, 1932. The newspaper also operated the WRJN radio station, with the call sign letters "RJN" being an abbreviation of "Racine Journal-News", which was kept after the Journal-News merged into the Journal Times.
