Daily Thanthi is a Tamil daily newspaper circulated in Tirunelveli, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Erode, Dindigul, Trichy, Salem, Nagercoil, Cuddalore, Vellore, Puducherry and Thanjavur.

Owned by Mr. Sivanthi Athithan, Daily Thanthi was founded by S.P. Adithanar. He was a lawyer who trained in Britain and practiced in Singapore. The first edition of Daily Thanthi came out from Madurai in 1942. Gradually, the newspaper went on to become very popular and its circulation spread over Tamil Nadu and the neighboring states of Pondicherry and Karnataka. In 1940, S.P. Adithanar opened editions in Madras, Salem and Tiruchirapalli. The edition of Salem could not become very successful and the Tiruchirapalli edition had to be reopened in 1954.

Over the years, Daily Thanthi became one of the largest Tamil language dailies in terms of circulation. Since the 1960s, it has become the most read Tamil daily newspaper. Currently, Daily Thanthi is published in fourteen editions. It is the highest circulated Tamil daily newspaper in Bangalore and Pondicherry and one of the largest in Tamil Nadu. In 2004, between July and December, 790,900 copies of Daily Thanthi had been circulated in Tamil Nadu. The paper also serves as a major tool for Tamil students in securing good marks in their board exams.
