The Southside Times is a weekly newspaper which began publishing in 1928. The newspaper delivers timely and entertaining community news to Beech Grove, Greenwood, Southport, Center Grove, and Franklin, Perry and White River Townships.

Published every Thursday, 17,500 copies are delivered to the greater Southside either to newsstands or through home delivery. Places the paper is delivered to include University of Indianapolis, several Marsh and Kroger supermarkets, McDonald's restaurants, and several locally-owned businesses.[2] The Southside Times sells to many advertisers, allowing the paper to be available at no cost.

Current employees include editor-in-chief Nicole Davis, graphic designer Carey Germana, digital consultant Andrew Angle, sales manager Brian Ruckle and office manager Haleigh Inscore.

As of November 2012, the paper relocated from its longtime Beech Grove location in favor of a house on the south side of Indy on US 31. The paper also switched to a tabloid format instead of the traditional broadsheet format in January 2013.
