Neue Zürcher Zeitung

The NZZ was called the Zürcher Zeitung on its founding in 1780, and then renamed in 1821. It was threatened with closure during the 1860s, which prompted Zurich liberals to found the AG NZZ. The NZZ always maintained close ties to the Free Democratic Party both at a personal level and in its stance on domestic politics. It owes its good name to the business and the arts sections, and in particular its coverage of foreign affairs, aided by a large network of foreign correspondents. The NZZ is considered the country's leading quality newspaper and also attracts plenty of attention from abroad. The NZZ group was formed in 1988 with its own book publisher, radio station and other areas. While the paper's circulation has sunk in recent years from 147,000 copies per edition in 2006 to 125,000, the Sunday edition NZZ am Sonntag has seen its circulation rise from 121,000 copies per edition in 2006 to 129,000.
