Norrköpings Tidningar

Norrköping, Sweden

Norrköpings Tidningar (Norrköping Times), also known as NT, is a Swedish daily newspaper with its main distribution in northern and eastern Östergötland. The newspaper was founded in 1758 as the Norrköping Weko-Tidningar, and published its first issue on October 14 of that year. Norrköpings Tidningar is Sweden’s oldest continually published newspaper still in print, and has published six days a week since 1871. The paper’s principal owner is the Erik and Asta Sundin Foundation, named after Erik Sundin, who served as editor-in-chief of the paper from 1899 until 1929, and his widow, Asta Sundin. The foundation has owned the paper since 1947.

Norrköpings Tidningar aligns with the Moderate Party, and is published by Norrköping Tidningar AB, which also publishes several other newspapers including Folkbladet, Gotlands Allehanda, Gotlands Tidningar, and Norrländska Socialdemokraten and operates the local television stations 24nt, 24Corren and 24Norrbotten and five local radio stations.
