The El Dorado Times is an American daily newspaper published in El Dorado, Kansas. It is owned by GateHouse Media.

The paper covers several communities in northern and eastern Butler County, Kansas, part of the Wichita metropolitan area. In addition to El Dorado, The Times' coverage area includes Benton, Leon, Potwin, Towanda and Whitewater.

The Times was founded in 1919 through the merger of two competing El Dorado dailies,[1] the El Dorado Republican (founded May 5, 1885) and the Walnut Valley Times (founded March 4, 1870, daily since March 1, 1887).

GateHouse Media also owns a weekly newspaper in the county, the Andover American, and a daily covering the southwestern side of Butler County, the Augusta Daily Gazette.
