Helsingør Dagblad (Elsinore Daily)

The city's newspaper has printed most everything worth knowing about Elsinore and its surroundings, ever since the first paper came out the 21st of October 1867. Every morning, from Monday to Saturday, Helsingør Dagblad lands in about 6000 mailboxes.

For many citizens, Helsingør Dagblad is as permanent a fixture to life in Elsinore as Brostrædeisen, Helsingør Pigegarde or Kronborg. For the newspaper is the primary source of news about everything local, regardless of whether you are left, right or centre on the political dial.

Helsingør Dagblad has been politically independent since 1979. In the latest years Helsingør Dagblad has, as opposed to many other local newspapers, experienced an increase in sales, and the paper has kept a black bottom line since 2008.

The recipe for the success has been attentive local journalism, bringing the reader all the way into the living room.

    Dagbladet skriver om stort og småt – på godt og ondt. Men de gør det, de bliver ved og de gør det godt – i alle kroge af kommunen. Fedt at have sit eget dagblad. Jeg håber at det lykkes dem at finde kræfter og økonomi til at lave et godt digitalt medietilbud, ikke mindst til yngre målgrupper.

    Ingen avis kan som Helsingør Dagblad, holde interesserede læsere orienteret om det meste af det der sker heroppe i “Nordens festlige hjørne”
    Det er af stor vigtighed for borgerne, at de hele tiden blive holdt ajour om alt det der hænder, ikke mindst det vore politikere beslutter. Der er jo heldigvis valg ind i mellem

Independent Journalism

Originally, Helsingør Dagblad supported the Danish party Venstre. But in 1905 – 1979 the newspaper was part of Det Radikale Venstre’s press front. For a while the paper was cross-party, before it declared itself completely independent of political affiliation. After a period of being owned by Berlingske Tidende, Helsingør Dagblad is now owned by the company North Media A/S.
