The Citizen, commonly referred to as The Auburn Citizen, is the only daily newspaper published in Auburn, New York. The paper serves Cayuga County and parts of the greater Central New York area. The publication is owned by Lee Enterprises.


The paper traces its roots to 1816.[1] The paper has been named The Citizen for decades but was previously published as The Citizen-Advertiser and The Daily Advertiser, among other names.[1]

Except on Sundays, when it was a morning paper, and Saturdays, on which the paper did not publish an edition for most of its history, The Citizen was an afternoon paper until 2008.

In 1999, The Citizen added a Saturday edition,[2] and in 2008, it switched from an afternoon publication to a morning publication, publishing papers seven days a week.[3]

On March 10, 2013, The Citizen announced it was returning to a six-day publication schedule as of April 1, 2013, with the paper no longer publishing a Monday edition.[2]
