Berlingske is a Danish national daily newspaper based in the capital Copenhagen. Previously it was known as Berlingske Tidende, which means Berlings times.
According to wikipedia it was first published on 3 January, 1749. It is one of the oldest newspaper in the world. Berlingske was founded by Denmark’s Royal Book Printer Ernst Henrich Berling. The paper is also one of the “big three” broadsheet-quality newspapers in Denmark along with Jyllands-Posten and Politiken.
Traditionally itself a broadsheet, Berlingske has been published in the tabloid/compact format since 28 August 2006. Berlingske Tidende has won many awards from different big and renowned organizations.
In January 2011, the newspaper’s title was abbreviated to Berlingske following a large-scale redesign of the newspaper’s web and digital presence.
Following a long period of ownership by the Berling family, the whole Berlingske-group was acquired in 1982 by a group of investors from the Danish corporate establishment including Danske Bank and A.P. Møller Mærsk. This takeover saved the group from an impending bankruptcy.
