History and profile
Norrbottens-Kuriren was founded in 1861, and therefore is the oldest newspaper in the region. The paper was acquired by Norrköping Tidningar AB (NTM Group) in 2000. The company also owns Norrköpings Tidningar and Folkbladet among the others.
Norrbottens-Kuriren is published in Berliner format. One of the paper's staff journalists were convicted of involvement in the political assassination attempt in 1940 against the rival left-wing newspaper Norrskensflamman, in which five people died. In the surrounding area, Norrbottens-Kuriren has one main competitor, named Norrländska Socialdemokraten (NSD). The managing director is Sture Bergman.
