Sunnmørsposten is a newspaper published by Polaris Media in Ålesund, Norway.

History and profile[edit]

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.

Mecom owned Sunnmorsposten until February 2009 when it was sold to the Polaris Media.[1][2]

In 2012 Sunnmorsposten launched a project in datajournalism.[3]
