The Charlotte Observer, serving Charlotte, North Carolina and its metro area, is the oldest daily newspaper in the United States (other newspapers, such as The New York Times began circulation before The Observer but were not daily). It is the largest newspaper, in terms of circulation, in North Carolina. The paper is owned by Knight Ridder.
