The Northwest Arkansas Times (ISSN 1066-3355) is a daily newspaper in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by Northwest Arkansas Newspapers and has circulation of 17,807 copies. It was formerly owned by the Thomson Corporation, who sold it to Hollinger in 1995; Hollinger sold it on to Community Publishers Inc., owned by Jim Walton, in 1999.[1][2] In 2005, WEHCO Media bought The Northwest Arkansas Times and the Benton County Daily Record from CPI.[3] In 2009, WEHCO and Stephens Media merged their northwest Arkansas papers into a joint venture, Northwest Arkansas Newspapers.[4] On Jan. 5, 2015, Northwest Arkansas Newspapers consolidated their four daily newspapers, Northwest Arkansas Times, Benton County Record, Springdale Morning News, and Rogers Morning News, creating the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette.[5]

History[edit]

The Democrat was founded on June 14, 1860 and operated under that name until 1893. The paper was then renamed to the Fayetteville Daily Democrat. In 1911, it was purchased by Jay Fulbright and upon his death in 1923 passed to his wife, Roberta Fulbright. She became president and publisher, renaming the paper to the Northwest Arkansas Times in 1937.[6] Upon Fulbright's death in 1953, control of the paper passed to her son-in-law, Hal Douglas.[7]
