Danish Urban receives €1 million state support
Free Danish daily Urban, published by Berlingske Media (Mecom), will receive 7.3 million Dkr (€1 million) support from the Danish Newspaper Board ‘Dagbladsnævnet‘.
The money must be used to develop the paper over the next three years. It’s the highest support the Newspaper Board has handed out since it started operating three years ago. Berlingske is required to put in an equal sum.
Earlier, also MetroXpress and 24Timer received support, in those cases for distribution only. At that time Urban criticized these media for accepting support. (MediaWatch)
