  Des Moines Register - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Des Moines Register is the daily morning newspaper of Des Moines, Iowa, in the United States.
In 1935, The Register and Tribune Company founded radio station KRNT-AM, named after the newspapers' nickname, "the R 'n T." In 1955, the company, renamed Cowles Communications some years earlier, founded Des Moines' third television station, KRNT-TV, which was renamed KCCI after the radio station was sold in 1974.
Although an "Iowa Edition" of the Register is still distributed throughout the state, many of the Register's news stories and editorials focus on Des Moines and its suburbs.

 Des Moines Register, by Ira Lacher - CJR, May/June 91
While The Des Moines Register carries a city's name, it has always been a state paper.
In February the Register announced it would no longer deliver the weekday paper in twenty-one western counties, (although some subscribers in sixteen of them could still get the paper by same-day mail).
Then, in March, the Register said it would close its Davenport bureau by July 1 (bureaus in Sioux City and Dubuque, on Iowa's western and eastern borders, respectively, were closed a few years ago), and raise the price of some of its editions that circulate beyond Des Moines by an unspecified amount.
