The Courier-Post is a morning daily newspaper that serves South Jersey near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. While based in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, United States, it serves most of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties.

As the fifth largest paper in New Jersey, the Courier-Post's main competitors are The Philadelphia Inquirer across the Delaware River in Pennsylvania, and the Burlington County Times and South Jersey Times in South Jersey.[1]

Established in 1875, the Post moved to Camden in 1879. It merged with The Telegram in 1899 to become The Post & Telegram. In 1926, The Post & Telegram and the Camden Courier consolidated under owner J. David Stern.[2][3]

The merged paper was bought by the Gannett newspaper chain in 1959.
