History and profile
In its early days, Sunnmørsposten competed with several other local newspapers, including Aalesunds Avis (1917–1957), Aalesunds blad (1871–1895), Aalesunds Handels- og Sjøfartstidende (1857–1904), Aalesunds Socialdemokrat (1908–1910), and Arbeidernes blad (1898).
Until May 2006 Sunnmørsposten was published in broadsheet format. At the time of its transition to compact format, it was one of the last newspapers in Norway to be published in broadsheet. Published in compact format (tabloid) six days a week, the paper consists of two sections; one for local news, sports and classified ads, and one for culture, weather, opinions and editorials and obituaries. On Saturdays they print a third weekend-section.
