Cumhuriyet (English: The Republic) is a centre-left Turkish daily newspaper, founded on 7 May 1924 by journalist Yunus Nadi Abalıoğlu. Based in Istanbul, it has been situated since 17 October 2005 in Şişli. Cumhuriyet was the last newspaper to leave the old press district Cağaloğlu. It has also offices in Ankara and İzmir.

Distribution[edit]

The circulation figure is around 58,000 copies as of 2005[citation needed]. On 7 May 1998 the newspaper went on internet version.

History[edit]

Following the death of Yunus Nadi on 28 March 1945 in Geneva, Switzerland, Cumhuriyet was owned by his eldest son Nadir Nadi until his death on 20 August 1991. Nadir Nadi's wife Berin then published the newspaper. Cumhuriyet is owned by the Cumhuriyet Foundation since the death of Berin Nadi on 5 November 2001. One of its publishers was the renowned political columnist İlhan Selçuk, who was also chairman of the board of trustees until he died in 2010.

During the Gulf War Cumhuriyet suffered a collapse in advertising revenue, and following an unrelated dispute over editorial policy, nearly 40 journalists and commentators walked out in November 1991: "Circulation fell by half, and it was saved only by an extraordinary campaign by readers to buy extra copies and even pay money into a special account."[2] Hasan Cemal, chief editor since 1981,[3] resigned in January 1992 over the dispute: "I tried to widen the spectrum, to keep the balance. But they (old-guard intellectuals) always resisted, calling us plotters, tools of big business and the United States".[2]

Cumhuriyet's office in Istanbul was the site of a molotov attack in 2008.[4]
