Janesville Messenger History
The Janesville Messenger, acquired by CSI in 1984, is circulated in Janesville, Milton, Edgerton, Footville and surrounding townships. The paper functioned profitably as a shopper for years, and in 2005 underwent a comprehensive redesign that has resulted in improved readership and a growing reputation as a high-quality source of local news. Circulation now exceeds 32,000 on Wednesdays and Sundays. The Messenger office is located in the Bliss Communications printing and distribution facility at 333 S. Wuthering Hills Dr. in Janesville.
