History[edit]

Egyptian Media Services closed Daily News Egypt after publishing the 20-21 April 2012 issue.[1][3] All content was produced by an Egyptian editorial team. Rania Al Malky was the last editor-in-chief of DNE, a position she has held since May 2007[4] after being promoted from the position of deputy editor she held when she joined the team in December 2006. She succeeded Firas Al Atraqchi, who was editor from October 2006 to April 2007 and who had joined following the departure of the first editor Amr Gamal, who held the position from August 2005 to October 2006. Last deputy editor was Sarah El Sirgany, business editor Amira Ahmed, features editor Dalia Rabie, arts and culture editor Joseph Fahim and lifestyle editor Heba Elkayal. The paper included contributions by a large network of freelancers based in Cairo.

On 18 May 2012, Business News for Press, Publishing and Distribution Company announced it would begin publishing a newspaper under the name Daily News Egypt in June 2012.[5][6] The newspaper was relaunched on 19 June 2012, and the web edition on 22 June 2012.
