The "Times-Union" was a widely circulated daily newspaper in the greater Rochester, New York area for 79 years. It was published as an afternoon daily counterpart to the morning "Democrat and Chronicle" under the ownership of Gannett when it ceased operations in 1997. In that year the paper merged with the "Democrat and Chronicle", with which it had shared a staff since 1992.

The "Times-Union" began publication in 1918, when newspaper magnate Frank Gannett merged the local "Evening Times" and "Union and Advertiser" papers. Ten years later Gannett purchased the 100-year-old "Democrat and Chronicle", the paper with which the "Times" would ultimately merge. The paper later won a Pulitzer Prize for covering the 1971 Attica Prison riots.cite web|url=http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F01E2DC1131F93BA15755C0A961958260|title="Rochester Times-Union Publishes Final Edition"|publisher=New York Times, Inc.|accessdate=2008-05-06] cite web|url=http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,787310,00.html?promoid=googlep|title="Thirteenth Paper"|publisher=Time|accessdate=2008-05-06]
