Nationen is a Norwegian daily newspaper (except Sundays).

History and profile[edit]

Nationen was founded in 1918.[1] The paper primarily targets farmers and the agriarian sector, with focus on district politics, farming, commentaries and features. It is based in Oslo with offices in Trondheim and Fagernes, and edited by Mari Velsand. The newspaper relies heavily on freelance journalists for regional coverage.

Traditionally Nationen has been controlled by the Centre Party, but they have since sold out, and the newspaper is owned by Tun Media that is controlled by the Norwegian Agrarian Association, TINE, Nortura and Landkreditt.[1] The media group also owns other publications. Nationen was against the EU membership of Norway.[2]

Nationen has had a tabloid format since 1986. An online version, nationen.no, was formally launched in 2001.[1]
