Habertürk (literally: "News Turkish"), abbreviated as HT, is a high-circulation Turkish newspaper. It was established on March 1, 2009 by Ciner Media Group, drawing on the brand of Ciner's Habertürk TV. Editor-in-chief is Fatih Altaylı.

The newspaper sold on its first day of publication 360,000 copies. At 10 hours local time, the first issue was outsold. The next day's circulation totaled to 202,000. The newspaper ranked that day fifth following the dailies Hürriyet (448,296), Sabah (420,148), Milliyet (204,477) and Vatan (204,154).[2] At its first publishing anniversary in 2010, the newspaper sold 380,000 copies, breaking its own record.

Unlike all other newspapers in Turkey, Habertürk is the first daily to print in Berliner format in 350 mm × 500 mm (14 in × 20 in), differing slightly from the standard Berliner.

Supplements[edit]

Habertürk comes out on weekdays with supplements HT Ekonomi (economy), HT Spor (sport), HT Magazin+Bulmaca (magazin plus crossword) and HT İstanbul/Ankara/İzmir (regionals). On weekends HT Cumartesi (Saturday) and HT Pazar (Sunday) suplemments are added. On Sundays, HT Kariyer (Human resources) and HT Tarih (History) supplements are added without charge.

Columnists[edit]
