A daily Lakes Region paper delivering the facts
Introduction
The Citizen was formerly an afternoon paper called the Laconia Evening Citizen. It was owned by Lawrence J. Smith and Alma Gallagher Smith until the Geo. J. Foster Company took over, May 10, 1991.

In the late 1990s, the Foster Company launched Foster's Sunday Citizen as a joint venture by Foster's Daily Democrat and The Citizen, neither of which previously had a Sunday edition.

In November 2006, The Citizen converted to morning publication; its sister paper in Dover followed a year later. The company made the change in order to compete with nearby papers such as the New Hampshire Union Leader and the Concord Monitor.

The Foster Company announced on June 23, 2010, that it would sell the paper on June 26, in order to concentrate on their main property, Foster's Daily Democrat. The company said it would continue to print The Citizen and the Laconia edition of the Sunday Citizen at its presses for at least the next three months.

The new owners, Eagle Publishing, publish several newspapers across the northeastern United States (The Eagle and The Citizen are part of The Sample News Group, headquartered in Pennsylvania).
