Published by Galadari Printing and Publishing Co. LLC, Khaleej Times is the UAE’s first and the country’s longest-running English broadsheet. Four decades after its first edition rolled out on April 16, 1978, KT remains youthful in posture yet mature in perspective, prolific in commendation but measured in condemnation, dynamic in display but diligent in detail, and global in foundation yet hyperlocal in focus.
Khaleej Times is the trusted source to report and present content in the most insightful, powerful and engaging way possible. For over 40 years, readers have relied on us to provide clarity and context in a complicated, confusing world. Be it print, digital or social we fulfil this promise with unparalleled news, comment and opinion delivered by award-winning journalists.
KT remains one of the most popular English language newspapers in the Gulf region. Besides UAE, the paper covers Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia through a dedicated distribution network. The broadsheet comprises the general news section, City Times (lifestyle and entertainment), an accomplished Business section and a lively Sport section.
Its WKND Magazine, distributed with the broadsheet on Fridays, discusses a range of topics that are of interest to men, women and children. KT recently relaunched Young Times on January 10, 2018, after a break of over 9 years. The magazine targets 9-14-year-old school kids. A daily classifieds section (KT Buzzon) carries local advertisements about cars, real estate, recruitment, educational services and matrimonial announcements.
Under the KT Spotlight umbrella, the newspaper regularly publishes Special Reports and Supplements, including on the national days of UAE, Pakistan, India and other countries. KT Spotlight is regarded as part of a valuable service to the community allowing for community advertisements and other services.
With KhaleejTimes.com and its various social media platforms, KT has a formidable digital footprint, boasting of the best reach and audience engagement in the UAE. It reaches out to a targeted local and global readership interested in news and information both about the UAE as well as the Middle East in general.
