The Examiner is the daily newspaper of eastern Jackson County, Missouri, including Independence, Blue Springs and Grain Valley. It is published five days a week – Tuesday through Saturday – and its webpage is at www.examiner.net.

The Examiner was first published as a weekly newspaper in 1898 by Col. William Southern. The daily edition began publication as The Independence Examiner May 16, 1905.[2] The official Examiner website was launched in 1996.

The paper was formerly owned by Stauffer Communications, which was acquired by Morris Communications in 1995.[3] Morris sold the paper, along with 13 others, to GateHouse Media in 2007.[4]

Audrey Stubbart, an American centenarian, worked for The Examiner until the age of 104.
