DW adds major Turkish newspaper as online partner
The cross-cultural relationship between Turkey and Germany has great economic and political significance for Europe. A new deal between DW and the leading Turkish newspaper Hürriyet will provide a new way for people in Turkey to access objective, quality news and information combined with a German perspective on world issues.
Starting in December 2013, the newspaper will be integrating DW’s quality Turkish language online content from the World news section as a prominent part of its website. Hürriyet’s World Web Coordinator Bülent Mumay and DW Director General Peter Limbourg signed the agreement during a recent meeting in Bonn.
Mumay praised DW as a leading world news organization and said the new partnership would make a valuable cultural and professional contribution to the relationship between the two countries. Over the course of 2014, the partnership will be expanded to include video sharing, co-productions and joint social media activities.
The Hürriyet newspaper was founded in 1948 and today it produces one of Europe’s leading news websites, with 2.3 million visitors per day. The paper is currently owned by the Doğan Media Group and has a news network with 52 offices and 600 reporters in Turkey and abroad. It is also a part of the Doğan News Agency. The paper is published in six Turkish cities as well as in Frankfurt. DW’s prominent place on their online platform will be sure to generate a larger and more dynamic Turkish audience for all of DW’s services. Hürriyet also provides an English language news service.
