Saamana (Marathi: सामना) is a Marathi-language newspaper owned by the Shiv Sena, a political party in Maharashtra, India. The paper was launched on 23 January 1988 by Bal Thackeray.[1] A Hindi version of the paper Dopahar Ka Saamana was launched on 23 February 1993.[1]

Until the death of Bal Thackeray on 17 November 2012, both the newspapers were edited by him. To honour him, his son Uddhav has named him as the "founder-editor".[1] The chief editor of both dailies is Uddhav Thackeray and the executive editors are Sanjay Raut and Prem Shukla of Marathi and Hindi versions respectively.[2]
