The Keighley News is a weekly newspaper formerly based in Keighley, West Yorkshire, England. As well as Keighley, its circulation area includes Cross Hills, Cullingworth, Denholme, East Morton, Haworth, Oxenhope, Silsden and Steeton.

The newspaper was a broadsheet until March 2007 when it became a tabloid.[3] The same year it also changed its publication day from Friday to Thursday. It is the sister paper of Telegraph & Argus, at whose Bradford printworks it is printed.

The Keighley News is owned by Newsquest,[1] the second largest publisher of regional newspapers in the United Kingdom. Its current editor is Richard Parker. Its circulation figure for the period from January to June 2007, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulation, was 15,228.[1]

From September 2007 to July 2012 half of the Keighley News building was leased to Bradford College who operated a community learning centre from the premises. The Keighley News reception desk closed its doors permanently on 29 January 2013 with all reception services and editing now being carried out at the Telegraph & Argus offices in Bradford. The whole building at Keighley has been sold off to a local businessman, but the Keighley News staff are still present as tenants and occupy offices in the property's attic.
