The El Paso Times is the primary English-language newspaper for the U.S. city of El Paso, Texas. The paper was founded in 1881 by Marcellus Washington Carrico. It originally started out as a weekly but within a year's time, it became the daily newspaper for the frontier town.

The newspaper has a daily circulation of 73,172 and 88,410 on Sundays. In December 2005, Gannett became a minority partner in the El Paso Times, handing the majority of the partnership and management to Denver-based MediaNews.

The paper is currently the only English-language daily in El Paso, but often competes with the Spanish-language El Diario de El Paso, an offshoot of El Diario de Juárez.

Because of declining newspaper circulations nationwide, the El Paso Times has recently expanded its online capabilities and introduced continuous online updates.



The El Paso Times prints news in several sections: •A-section: all-local news cover page, with national, Mexico and international news in the inside pages.

•Borderland: the metro news page has an all-local cover page as well as neighborhood, New Mexico and Texas news.

•Sports: local and national sports, with an emphasis in high-school and UTEP coverage.

•Business: local and national business news.

•Living: local and national feature stories including rotating sections covering seniors, religion, pop culture, the arts, books, health, home decor, entertainment news, local music and fashion.

•Tiempo: weekly entertainment guide published on Fridays. It includes concerts, movies, galleries, restaurant reviews and other entertainment related stories.

Other publications

The El Paso Times publishes several other weekly, biweekly and monthly publications.

•El Paso y Más: bi-weekly Spanish news coverage.

•TV y Más: weekly television guide and Spanish entertainment magazine.
