The Democrat and Chronicle is a daily newspaper serving the greater Rochester, New York area. Located at 55 Exchange Boulevard in downtown Rochester, the Democrat and Chronicle operates under the ownership of Gannett. The paper's production facility is located in the town of Greece. The Democrat and Chronicle is Rochester's only daily circulated newspaper.

Founded in 1833 as The Balance, the paper eventually became known as the Daily Democrat.[2] The Daily Democrat merged with another local paper, the Chronicle, in 1870, to become known as the Democrat and Chronicle. The paper was purchased by Gannett in 1928.[3] This is also when the D&C's current editorial facility was built, on Exchange Boulevard in Rochester.

According to the official site, the Democrat and Chronicle is delivered to over 170,000 homes, 1300 retail stores and over 1000 news racks.

From 1928 to 1985, the Democrat and Chronicle was Gannett's flagship paper, and Gannett's corporate headquarters were located in the Democrat and Chronicle building. Gannett moved its headquarters to Tysons Corner, Virginia; home of USA Today, in 1985. The Democrat and Chronicle continues to occupy the historic Gannett Building.

In 2010, The Democrat and Chronicle ranked number one among US newspapers in market penetration, the percentage of readers in a metro area who read in print or online. The Democrat and Chronicle held that top spot for several years, and have been among the leaders since the 1990s.[4]
