The Sentinel is a daily newspaper based in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, serving the Harrisburg-Carlisle metropolitan area. It is Cumberland County's only daily newspaper.

In 2012, the newspaper launched a partnership with abc27 News in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.[2] The media outlets coordinate and share news coverage. Also that year, The Sentinel expanded its print edition to include weekly local sections about food, health, outdoors, faith, entertainment and history; a daily local opinion page; and a daily "Capital Region" page with news from Harrisburg and its suburbs.[3]

In 2013, the newspaper's circulation rose[4] when the nearby Patriot-News cut back its print product from seven days per week to three.[5] It opened a bureau in the state Capitol Complex in Harrisburg with Calkins Media, which provides statehouse news coverage to The Sentinel and Calkins Media's newspapers across Pennsylvania.

In addition to the daily newspaper, The Sentinel produces three weekly newspapers: The Shippensburg Sentinel in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, where it also has an office; Perry Weekly in Perry County; and Sunday Select in Cumberland County.

Its digital offerings include desktop and mobile versions of, an iOS app, and an Android sports app.
