Every Janesville citizen has a right to be informed, and to inform; FORWARD with the freedom of speech!
The Janesville Courant was established on April 9, 2012. It took the name of 'courant' in honor of the Daily Courant, one of the world's first regular daily newspapers. The objective of TJC is to promote an additional media outlet of news, perspective and support of community events or organizations while keeping 'local' the basis of TJC's theme.
