Akşam (Evening) is a Turkish newspaper founded in 1918, owned by a Cengiz-Kolin-Limak joint venture since July 2013. Considered a centre-left newspaper, in 2013 it had a circulation of around 100,000.
Akşam was owned by the Çukurova Media Group from 1997 to 2013, and previously Mehmet Ali Ilıcak. It is currently owned by the Turkish government's TMSF. Shortly after it was acquired by the TMSF, a number of journalists were fired, with the former AKP deputy Mehmet Ocaktan replacing editor of five years İsmail Küçükkaya, and at least four journalists who had been critical of the government fired. On 19 July it was sold (together with TV channel Sky Turk 360 and radio station Alem FM) to a Cengiz-Kolin-Limak joint venture for TL60m.
