Dagens Nyheter (About this sound listen ; DN; Swedish: lit. "today's news") is a daily newspaper in Sweden. It is published in Stockholm and aspires to full national and international coverage.

History and profile[edit]

DN was founded by Rudolf Wall in December 1864.[1][2][3] The first issue was published on 23 December 1864. During its initial period the paper was published in the morning.[4] In 1874 the paper became a joint stock company.[5] Its 1880 circulation was 15,000 copies.[2]

In the 1890s Wall left DN and soon after, the paper became the organ of the Liberal Party.[4] From 1946 to 1959 Herbert Tingsten was the executive editor.[6]

DN is owned by the Bonnier Group.[7][8] The format of the paper was completely changed from the classic broadsheet[9][10] to compact format on 5 October 2004.[11][12]

DN is operated from the so-called "DN-skrapan" (the DN skyscraper or Dagens Nyheter Tower) in Sweden. This was completed in 1964 and was designed by the architect Paul Hedqvist. It is 84 metres (276 feet) tall and has 27 floors, none of which are underground.

In 1996, the entire enterprise moved to its current location on Gjörwellsgatan, which is adjacent to the old DN Tower.[13] The newspaper Expressen is also located in this building. Both papers are owned by the Bonnier Group.[14]

Opinion leaders often choose DN as the venue for publishing major opinion editorials. The stated position of the editorial page is "independently liberal".[7][15][16] However, it left its formal alliance with the liberal establishments in the country in 1972.[4]

In 2014 Dagens Nyheter was chosen as Scandinavia’s best-designed newspaper in the Best of Scandinavian News Design competition.[17]

In the 1960s the circulation of DN was much higher than that of other Swedish dailies.[1] The paper has the largest circulation among the Swedish morning newspapers followed by Göteborgs-Posten and Svenska Dagbladet, and is the only morning newspaper that is distributed to subscribers across the whole country. In 2001 its circulation was 361,000 copies.[10] The 2004 circulation of the paper was 363,000 copies.[11] The circulation of the paper was 363,100 copies in weekdays in 2005.[7] It was 292,300 copies in 2010.[18] In 2013, the print edition of DN had a circulation of 282,800 copies, reaching 758,000 people every day.[19] The web edition, DN.se, had on average roughly 1.5 million unique visitors per week during 2013.
