Kuwait Times was founded by Yousuf Saleh Alyan in 1961,[2][3] The 36-page broadsheet provides in-depth reporting on local events and business news, analysis and editorials on local, regional, and international issues, and entertainment and sports news and features.

The Kuwait Times also publishes a free 80-page tabloid, the first in the country. The Friday Times offers local commentary, news, and analysis as well as entertainment, sports, and comprehensive features. Its 2001 circulation was 28,000 copies.[1]
