Jornal de Notícias (JN) (English: "Journal News") is a Portuguese daily national newspaper, one of the oldest in Portugal.

History and profile[edit]

JN was founded in Porto[1] on 2 June 1888, and has since become one of the most popular newspapers, especially after the Carnation Revolution.

Since the late 1990s JN has provided several gifts as a way to retain and attract new readers. The newspaper could offer various gifts, such as collectible fascicles and cutlery.

After the Carnation revolution, JN was nationalized and later privatized in the early 1990s to the Lusomundo group. JN, along with Diário de Notícias, is nowadays owned by Controlinveste.

It is currently published in four editions: National, Centre, Minho, and South. Its editor-in-chief is Manuel Tavares.

The circulation of JN was 108,000 copies in the period between January and September 2000.[1]
