Utusan Malaysia (GPS: 5.42081, 100.33177), in Jawi script اوتوسن مليسيا, is a Malay-language newspaper in Malaysia. Its Penang bureau is located on Argyll Road. In addition to publishing the daily broadsheet, Utusan Malaysia also publishes Minguan Malaysia, Kosmo!, and Kosmo! Ahad.
Utusan Malaysia was first published in 1939. It was founded by Yusof Ishak, who became the first President of Singapore, and was first published at Queens Street in Singapore. It was originally known as Utusan Melayu, and was published in the Jawi script. Publication was temporarily suspected during the Japanese Occupation. In 1945 Utusan Melayu relocated its main bureau to Cecil Street, and in 1959, it moved again, to Jalan Chan Sow Lin in Kuala Lumpur.
In 1961, Utusan Melayu was acquired by the United Malays National Organisation, or UMNO. Since then, it has become the mouthpiece of UMNO. The first Utusan Malaysia, which is the version of Utusan Melayu in the romanised script, was published on 1 September, 1967. The online version of Utusan Malaysia was published in 1997.
