Expressen is one of two nationwide evening tabloid newspapers in Sweden, the other being Aftonbladet. Expressen was founded in 1944; its symbol is a wasp and slogans "it stings" or "Expressen to your rescue", always on the reader's side.

Overview[edit]

Through mergers, the Gothenburg edition of Expressen is titled GT (originally Göteborgs-Tidningen) and the Malmö edition is titled Kvällsposten, but the three share half of the content. Expressen (with GT and Kvällsposten) maintains a centre-right political profile, describing its editorial position as "independent liberal", while the competitor Aftonbladet is social-democratic. Ownership of Expressen (and Sweden's largest morning newspaper Dagens Nyheter) is controlled by the Bonnier family, while Aftonbladet is owned jointly by Swedish trade unions and the Norwegian publishing family Schibsted.

The first edition was released on 16 November 1944. A main feature that day was an interview with the crew members of a British bomber who were successful in sinking the German ship Tirpitz. Its Editor in chief is Thomas Mattsson.

The paper is owned by the Bonnier Group.[2]

Kvällsposten[edit]

Kvällsposten is an edition of Expressen, distributed in southern Sweden. Its editorial offices are in Malmö. Editor in Chief is Martin Kroon.

GT[edit]

Göteborgs-Tidningen or GT was a tabloid newspaper founded in Göteborg in 1902 and distributed in Western Sweden. GT was owned by Göteborgs Handels- och Sjöfartstidning, but in 1973 acquired by Göteborgs-Posten. In 1998, Bonnier AB bought the newspaper and since then it has become a local edition of Expressen.

GT '​s headquarters are found at Kungstorget 2, Göteborg. Its editor in chief is Frida Boisen.[3][4]
