Sightline Media Group, formerly Gannett Government Media and Army Times Publishing Company, is a United States company that publishes newspapers, magazines, Web sites, and other publications about the U.S. and other militaries.
The company's Military Times group publishes four bimonthly newspapers aimed at current and former U.S. military personnel: Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times, and Marine Corps Times. It also publishes Defense News, C4ISRNET and Federal Times.
Its defunct publications include Armed Forces Journal, founded in 1863, which was the nation's longest-running defense-themed publication until it ceased publication in 2014.
The company was founded in 1940 as the Army Times Publishing Company.
In August 1997, it was purchased by the Gannett Company.
As part of the spinoff of digital and broadcasting properties in 2015, Gannett spun off these properties to Tegna. In March 2016, Tegna sold Sightline Media Group to Regent, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm controlled by investor Michael Reinstein.
In 2011, hackers breached a Sightline database of subscribers, obtaining their names, passwords, email addresses, duty status, paygrade, and branch of service.
