Akşam was owned by the Çukurova Media Group from 1997 to 2013, and previously Mehmet Ali Ilıcak. It is currently owned by the Turkish government's TMSF. Shortly after it was acquired by the TMSF, a number of journalists were fired, with the former AKP deputy Mehmet Ocaktan replacing editor of five years İsmail Küçükkaya, and at least four journalists who had been critical of the government fired. On 19 July 2013 it was sold (together with TV channel Sky Turk 360 and radio station Alem FM) to a Cengiz-Kolin-Limak joint venture for TL60m. In September 2013, Cengiz-Kolin-Limak withdraw from the attempt of buying Akşam. In October 2013, Akşam, TV channel Sky Turk 360, radio station Alem FM and Alem Magazine was sold to Ethem Sancak.
