The Tehran Times (TT) is the Islamic Republic of Iran’s first English daily newspaper, which began its work in 1979 to air the voice of the Islamic Revolution. The daily’s general policy was based on Ayatollah Beheshti’s statement: “The Tehran Times is not the newspaper of the government; it must be a loud voice of the Islamic Revolution and the loudspeaker of the oppressed people of the world”.

This sentence is written on the exterior wall of the newspaper’s offices, so that it is always remembered by the staff as a motto. Now, after 41 years, the Tehran Times has become a strong tree, the fruit of which is attracting readers from over 80 different countries. Every day, the newspaper staff comes together from different parts of the Tehran metropolis to present their work on the next day in 16 pages at the newsstands. TT covers domestic, political, social, foreign, and sports news and also includes commentary.
