Delaware County Daily Times (until 1959 named Chester Times) is an American newspaper that published "The Phantom" daily strip from 1938 to 1977 and publishes now in present. The Sunday edition is known as the Delaware County Sunday Times, and has also published Phantom strips.

History

The first edition of the paper, then known as the Chester Times, was a four-page broadsheet printed on September 7, 1876 selling for one cent. "The Phantom" first appeared in Chester Times in October 1938.

In November 1959, the Chester Times changed its name to the Delaware County Daily Times and moved its main office from Chester, Pennsylvania to the Primos section of Upper Darby Township, Pennsylvania. It is one of the only major newspapers in the state to be branded with a county name rather than a city.
