Weekly newspaper


Weltwoche was founded in 1933, taking the French weekly publications as its model. It was critical of both communism and National Socialism. Until 2001 Wochenzeitung was a centrist publication but this changed when the conservative financier Tito Tettamani acquired a majority stake. Under its current publisher and editor-in-chief Roger Köppel, who has been a member of the Swiss parliament for the right-wing, nationalist-conservative SVP since 2015, Weltwoche has a right-wing populist bias.
