The Republican - Herald is a daily newspaper serving Pottsville, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The newspaper is owned by Times-Shamrock Communications.

The Republican-Herald was founded in 1884 as The Daily Republican by Joseph Henry Zerbey. In 1995, J.H. Zerbey Newspapers, Inc., the parent company of the Pottsville Republican, purchased the 120 Year Old Shenandoah Evening Herald, to form the Pottsville Republican & Evening Herald. Times Shamrock Communications purchased J.H. Zerbey Newspapers and subsequently the newspaper in 2003. In 2004, the newspaper became a morning newspaper, renamed the Republican & Herald.[1] In 2009, the "&" was dropped from the cover title.

In 2005 it had an average daily circulation of 26,747.[2] As of December 2010, newsstand prices were $1.00 for the daily edition and $2.00 for the Sunday edition.

In 1979, writers Gilbert M. Gaul and Elliot G. Jaspin won a Pulitzer Prize for Local Investigative Specialized Reporting for stories on the destruction of the Blue Coal Company by men with ties to organized crime.[3]
