De Standaard

De Standaard first went into publication in 1918 as the successor to the Catholic weekly Ons Volk ontwaakt (Our People Awakes). Under chief editor Peter Vandermeersch (now with NRC Handelsblad) this quality paper abandoned its clerical stance and adopted a liberal outlook and modern layout. A digital evening edition for PCs, tablets and smartphones has also been available since 2012.
