Crónica is a newspaper published in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Founded on July 29, 1963, by publisher Héctor Ricardo García, it became well known for its oversized headlines and yellow press approach; as García explained: "we needed a strident daily, with large and shocking headlines, like the kind one sees in Central America, because our papers were too placid."

Crónica, which had reached a daily circulation of 800,000 and rivaled Clarín as the nation's leading news daily, was shuttered by President Isabel Perón in 1975, and though it was reopened in 1977, it never regained its former prominence. Crónica, whose logo is Firme junto al pueblo ("Firmly with the people"), is published with three editions: morning, evening and night, and its average daily circulation in 2006 was 58,432.
