History and profile[edit]

Knack was founded in 1971 as the first Flemish news magazine in the country.[1][2][3] The magazine was modelled on Time, Newsweek, Der Spiegel and L’Express.[4] It has a left-liberal stance.[1]

The owner of the magazine is Roularta Media Group.[4] It is published weekly on Wednesdays.[1] The headquarters of the magazine is in Brussels.[1] It is Flemish equivalent of the French language news magazine Le Vif/L’Express which is also owned by Roularta Media Group.[5] Both magazines are published by Roularta Printing, a subsidiary of the Roularta Media Group.[6]

Knack has two main supplements, Knack Weekend and Focus Knack.[7] In 2010 Knack began to offer T'chin, a health supplement, together with its sister magazine Le Vif/L’Express.[8]
