The Glasgow Daily Times is a five-day morning daily newspaper based in Glasgow, Kentucky, and covering Barren County. It publishes on weekday mornings and Saturday mornings. The newspaper is owned by Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. (CNHI), based in Birmingham, Alabama.
The newspaper originated in 1865 as the Glasgow Times weekly newspaper. It became a daily newspaper in 1953. The paper was owned by Glasgow businessman Carroll Knicely from the 1950s through 1977, when it was sold to Donrey Media, the company owned by Arkansas media magnate Donald W. Reynolds. Donrey added the Sunday ediiton in 1979. Donrey sold the Daily Times and many other of its holdings to the newly formed CNHI in 1997.
The Daily Times also owned and operated The Glasgow Republican for many years. The Republican was originally a competing weekly, but when the Times bought it in the 1960s, they continued to operate it as a weekly, largely using content from the previous week's Times editions, but still with a separate editor. When CNHI took over, the Republican was discontinued.
