Frankfurter Rundschau

Daily newspaper

The Frankfurter Rundschau was badly hit by the media crisis. In May 2004 the SPD-owned media holding company DDVG bought a 90 percent stake in the company. In 2006 Cologne publishers M. DuMont Schauberg bought 51 percent. In 2010 the paper was produced by the DuMont editorial collective, in 2012 it was on the verge of being discontinued but was taken over by Frankfurter Societät, the FAZ publishing house and the Karl Gerold foundation, and a mimimal editorial team was kept on. From 2011 to 2013, its supra-regional section was produced in Berlin, in cooperation with the Berliner Zeitung. In 2013, the Frankfurter Rundschau returned to being produced entirely in Frankfurt. In March 2018, the Ippengruppe took over the Mediengruppe Frankfurt together with the Frankfurter Rundschau and Frankfurter Neue Presse.
