The Gadsden Times is a daily newspaper serving Gadsden, Alabama, and the surrounding area in northeastern Alabama.

The Times was owned by Halifax Media Group.[2] Before that, the newspaper was a member of the New York Times Regional Media Group, a subsidiary of the New York Times Company,[3] through the corporate entity of NYT Holdings, Inc., an Alabama corporation.[4] The New York Times Company acquired the Times in 1985 from the Public Welfare Foundation, a charitable entity.[5] The Times had been donated to that foundation by its owner Edward Marsh, along with other newspapers he owned, before his death in 1964.[6]

In 2015, Halifax was acquired by New Media Investment Group,[7] and in November 2019, New Media amalgamated with Gannett.

The Times has twelve-month average circulation of 19,400 daily and 20,600 Sunday.
