History and profile
Diário de Notícias was first published in Lisbon on 29 December 1864 by Tomás Quintino Antunes and Eduardo Coelho. At its early phase the paper had no explicit political stance. During the 1880s the novelist Eça de Queiroz, then stationed in England in the Portuguese diplomatic service, contributed occasional "London letters" to the newspaper. Some of these were afterwards published in book form as the Cartas de Inglaterra.
Before the Carnation revolution Diário de Notícias belonged to the Empresa Nacional de Publicidade. Following the Carnation revolution, the paper was nationalized and later privatized in the early 1990s. Then the paper and Jornal de Notícias were sold to the Lusomundo group. Both papers are now owned by Global Media Group (formerly Controlinveste Media).
In the period of 1995–1996 Diário de Notícias had a circulation of 63,000 copies, making it the second best-selling paper in the country. The circulation of the paper was 44,055 copies in 2002. It was 54,000 copies in 2003 and 45,015 copies in 2004. The circulation of the paper was 37,992 copies in 2005, 37,904 copies in 2006 and 37,759 copies in 2007. The paper had a circulation of 34,119 copies in 2011.
