The Cumberland Times-News is a seven-day morning daily newspaper serving Cumberland, Maryland, United States, and the surrounding areas of Allegany and Garrett counties in Maryland, and Mineral County in West Virginia.

In addition to its Cumberland headquarters, the newspaper maintained satellite bureaus in Frostburg and McHenry, Maryland, and in Keyser, West Virginia. The last of these, the Keyser bureau, closed in March 2009 in order to cut costs for the newspaper.[2] Times-News staff also put out a subscription-based weekend edition covering business and politics throughout the region and state.

Thomson Newspapers bought the Times-News in 1986 from the McMullen family.[3] Community Newspaper Holdings acquired the Times-News in 2000.[4]
