First issue of the Diário de Notícias (29 December 1864)

Diário de Notícias was first published in Lisbon on 29 December 1864 by Tomás Quintino Antunes and Eduardo Coelho. [1] [2] At its early phase the paper had no explicit political stance and financially relied on the advertisements. [1] [3] Its headquarters is in Lisbon. [4] During the 1880s the novelist Eça de Queiroz, then stationed in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England in the Portuguese diplomatic service, contributed occasional "London letters" to the newspaper. Some of these were afterwards published in a book entitled Cartas de Inglaterra .

Before the Carnation Revolution Diário de Notícias belonged to the Empresa Nacional de Publicidade, a propaganda arm of the dictatorship. [5] Following the Carnation Revolution, the paper remained nationalized until the early 1990s. [5] Then the paper and Jornal de Notícias were sold to the Lusomundo group. [5] [6] In 2005 the Controlinveste group bought the papers. [7] Both papers are now owned by Angolan media conglomerate Global Media Group (formerly Controlinveste Media). [8] [9]

Diário de Notícias is published in tabloid format. [10] Music critic Joaquim de Seabra Pessoa  [ pt ], father of poet Fernando Pessoa, worked for the paper.

In 2018 Diário de Notícias became a weekly newspaper published on Saturdays.


In the period of 1995–1996 Diário de Notícias had a circulation of 63,000 copies slightly down on its 1880s circulation and below its peak as a propaganda newspaper for the Estado Novo in the 1930s (circulation of 120,000 in mainland Portugal and an additional 70,000 in its colonies), making it the seventh best-selling newspaper and third best selling daily newspaper in the country. [11] The circulation of the paper was 44,055 copies in 2002. [12] It was 54,000 copies in 2003 [10] and 45,015 copies in 2004. [12] The circulation of the paper was 37,992 copies in 2005, 37,904 copies in 2006 and 37,759 copies in 2007. [12] Its 2008 circulation was 33,626 copies in 2008. [9]

Diário de Notícias had a circulation of 34,119 copies in 2011 [13] and 29,054 copies in 2012. [14]

By 2017 the circulation was down to less than 19,000 copies and the newspaper had undergone a change to a tabloid journalism relying on its online advertising and the Angolan media group that owns it to stay open.


Note: It is understood by «Non-periodical fixed supplements» that those are proper supplements of the newspaper (and not edited by external people to the newspaper for the newspaper to publish it) though not published periodically.
