The Oregonian is the major daily newspaper in Portland, Oregon, owned by Advance Publications. It is the oldest continuously published newspaper on the U.S. west coast, founded as a weekly by Thomas J. Dryer on December 4, 1850. It is the largest newspaper in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest by circulation and the 19th largest daily newspaper in the country.

The Oregonian received the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting in 1999, and since then has received four other Pulitzers, including the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, and most recently, the prize for Breaking News Reporting in 2007.

The Oregonian is home delivered throughout Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, and Yamhill counties in Oregon and Clark County, Washington; it is also home delivered in parts of Marion and Columbia counties. Some independent dealers deliver the newspaper outside of that area, though in 2006 it became no longer available in far eastern Oregon and the southern Oregon Coast, and starting in December 2008 "increasing newsprint and distribution costs" caused the paper to stop deliveries to all areas south of Albany.
