Speidel Newspapers bought the Gazette on October 1, 1939 and bought the Journal a month later.[3] Gannett bought Speidel Newspapers on May 11, 1977.[4]

On April 16, 2019, an edition of the Nevada State Journal was found during the opening of a time capsule from 1872 in the cornerstone of a demolished Masonic lodge in Reno.[5][6]

The Reno Gazette Journal is one of two dailies (the other being the Sparks Tribune) covering the Reno–Sparks metropolitan area, which is also served by the Reno News & Review, an alternative newsweekly.
