The company’s Military Times group publishes four bimonthly newspapers aimed at current and former U.S. military personnel: Army Times (founded 1940), Navy Times (founded 1951), Air Force Times (founded 1947), and Marine Corps Times. It also publishes Defense News (founded 1986), C4ISRNET and Federal Times. 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.
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.
