The world’s oldest newspaper
February 4th, 2007

“The world’s oldest newspaper, Sweden’s Post-och Inrikes Tidningar, has embraced the digital age, ending its run as a print publication and opting to be published exclusively on the Internet,”this AsiaMedia article reports.”Founded in 1645 by Queen Christina, the Post-och Inrikes Tidningar (PoIT) — or Post and Domestic Newspapers — was a staple for readers in Sweden from the late 17th century to the 18th century.But its readership dwindled as rival newspapers appeared, confining PoIT by the 1900s primarily to the publication of announcements from publicly listed companies, and financial and legal institutions.While the paper has not covered news stories for more than 100 years, the World Association of Newspapers recognizes PoIT as the world’s oldest newspaper still in publication”.
