The Berlin Citizen is a free weekly newspaper published in Berlin, Connecticut, United States.

For 17 years, Berlin lacked a local newspaper since the Berlin Eagle ceased publication in 1970. Brothers Arthur and David Durity and their friends Steven and Kevin Cyr started the Citizen to fill the gap.[1][2] The first publication debuted in January 1997 but was suspended in July of the same year after the paper ran out of money.[3]

In October, the Meriden Record-Journal bought the newspaper after seeing how well it was received by the community.[4][5]

The Citizen has won statewide awards, including first place in the "business" category and second place in the "sports" category in 2008.[6]

The Citizen is mailed free to an estimated 10,000 Berlin residents and businesses.[7]
