The Friesch Dagblad is a Dutch daily newspaper founded in 1903. It covers the region of Friesland with news reports written from a protestant perspective. The main competitor is the Leeuwarder Courant, and like that paper, the Friesch Dagblad publishes most of its content in Dutch, with only about 5% of content in Frisian.[2]
