The Phoenix Gazette was a newspaper published in Phoenix, Arizona, United States. It was founded in 1881, and was known in its early years as the Phoenix Evening Gazette.

In 1930 it was purchased by Charles Stauffer and W. Wesley Knorpp, the owner of its one-time rival Arizona Republic. Both papers were subsequently acquired by Eugene C. Pulliam in 1946.

Under Pulliam's management, it continued to operate as the main evening paper for the Phoenix area for several decades. During the 1970s and 1980s it was published weekday and Saturday afternoons.

In August 1995, the staffs of The Republic and The Gazette merged, and The Gazette mostly became an afternoon edition of The Republic with a few updates. Eventually its circulation declined and it ceased publication in January 1997.
