Einar Fredrik Åke Tinius Nagell-Erichsen (15 February 1934 12 November 2007) was a Norwegian publisher, noted for his leadership of the Schibsted media conglomerate which includes the broadsheet newspaper Aftenposten and the tabloid Verdens gang .


Nagell-Erichsen was the great-grandson of Christian Michael Schibsted, the founder of the Schibsted corporation. His father was the Leif Nagell-Erichsen, a noted attorney. The Schibsted corporation was closely held by the Nagell-Erichsen, Riddervold, and Huitfeld families.


Nagell-Erichsen attended the London School of Economics, earning a Master of Science in 1959. He also worked as a waiter for two years in California. He started his career in newspapers as a journalist at a local newspaper Lillehammer Tilskuer to learn the newspaper trade, even learning how to use the typesetting equipment.

Work life

Nagell-Erichsen joined Aftenposten as a junior manager, to the surprise of the owning families of the corporations. In 1968 he became publisher of Verdens Gang, which at the time was at the brink of bankruptcy. He turned the newspaper around, setting it for the course of becoming Norway's largest newspaper. He took over as publisher of Aftenposten in 1970 until 1983, and was the chairman of the board for Schibsted from 1992-2002.

The Tinius Trust

Nagell-Erichsen was noted for his gregarious manner and idealism. Among other things, he arranged to place the ownership of Schibsted in an irrevocable trust that would make it impossible for foreign interests to buy the newspaper. The Tinius Trust was founded in 1996.

As the capital of Norway, Oslo holds the headquarters of most national newspapers in Norway. On the other hand, there have been discussions on the lack of local newspapers covering the communities and day-to-day affairs of the boroughs of Oslo. At various times, there have been efforts to prop up local newspapers. The 1920s saw a wave of establishments which restricted themselves to covering specific outer boroughs of the former Aker municipality. The early 21st century saw several new borough-specific newspapers emerge, alongside some publications seeking to cover the politics of the city as a whole.
