Sightline Media Group, formerly Gannett Government Media, is a United States company which publishes newspapers, magazines, Web sites, and other publications about the U.S. and other militaries. Founded in 1940, it was purchased by the Gannett Company in August 1997.

It publishes four bimonthly newspapers aimed at current and former U.S. military personnel: Army Times (founded 1940), Navy Times (founded 1951), Air Force Times (founded 1947), and Marine Corps Times. They have a combined circulation count of 237,761.

It also publishes Defense News (founded 1986), C4ISRNET and Federal Times.

According to a Huffington Post AOL News online news article from Boston, Massachusetts by Jim Finkle of Thomson Reuters, dated Wednesday, June 29, 2011: "Hackers broke into a Gannett Co database containing personal information about subscribers to publications read by U.S. government officials, military leaders, and rank-and-file soldiers, the media company said on Tuesday."

As part of the spinoff of digital and broadcasting properties in 2015, Gannett spun off these properties to Tegna. In March 2016, Tegna sold Sightline Media Group to Regent Companies, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm controlled by investor Michael Reinstein.
