Nya Wermlands-Tidningen (meaning "The New Värmland Newspaper" in English), shortened NWT, is a Swedish local newspaper distributed in the provinces of Värmland, Dalsland and western Dalarna.

History and profile[edit]

The newspaper was founded as Wermlands Tidning (meaning "Newspaper of Värmland" in English) in Karlstad,[1] Värmland, where it still has its headquarters. The first issue of the newspaper was published on 4 January 1837. While other newspapers already existed in the province, Wermlands Tidning quickly became the most printed.

On 2 May 2005, the format of the newspaper was changed from broadsheet to compact.

On 3 April 2007, the political position of the editorial page was changed from "moderate" (liberal-conservative) to "conservative",[1] in what the newspaper stated was an attempt to mark its independence from any political parties (i.e. the Swedish Moderate Party).[citation needed] It's the only Swedish newspaper with the label "conservative".
