History and profile
HP/De Tijd was founded in 1990 after a merger of the news magazine Haagse Post and De Tijd. Haagse Post was a social liberal news magazine published weekly from 1914 to 1969. De Tijd was a Catholic weekly magazine.
HP/De Tijd is published by Audax Publishing. The company bought the magazine in 1994 from publisher HPU, VNU and MeesPierson bank. The headquarters of the magazine is in Amsterdam. The magazine is conventionally considered to be one of the four most influential written media in its sector, along with De Groene Amsterdammer, Vrij Nederland and Elsevier. In the early 2000s HP/De Tijd was known for its right-wing discourse (often featuring right-wing luminaries such as Pim Fortuyn), but nowadays the opinions in the magazine lean more to the left.
HP/De Tijd was published weekly until 25 April 2012 when its frequency became monthly.
