Diário de Notícias is a Portuguese daily newspaper published in Lisbon, Portugal.

History and profile

First issue of the Diário de Notícias (29 December, 1864).

Diário de Notícias was first published in Lisbon on 29 December 1864 by Tomás Quintino Antunes and Eduardo Coelho.[1][2] At its early phase the paper had no explicit political stance and financially relied on the advertisements.[1][3] Its headquarters is in Lisbon.[4] During the 1880s the novelist Eça de Queiroz, then stationed in England in the Portuguese diplomatic service, contributed occasional "London letters" to the newspaper. Some of these were afterwards published in a book entitled Cartas de Inglaterra.

Before the Carnation revolution Diário de Notícias belonged to the Empresa Nacional de Publicidade.[5] Following the Carnation revolution, the paper was nationalized and later privatized in the early 1990s.[5] Then the paper and Jornal de Notícias were sold to the Lusomundo group.[5][6] Both papers are now owned by Global Media Group (formerly Controlinveste Media).[7][8]

Diário de Notícias is published in tabloid format.[9] Music critic Joaquim Seabra Pessoa, best known for being Fernando Pessoa's father, also worked for the paper.


In the period of 1995–1996 Diário de Notícias had a circulation of 63,000 copies, making it the second best-selling paper in the country.[10] The circulation of the paper was 44,055 copies in 2002.[11] It was 54,000 copies in 2003[9] and 45,015 copies in 2004.[11] The circulation of the paper was 37,992 copies in 2005, 37,904 copies in 2006 and 37,759 copies in 2007.[11] Its 2008 circulation was 33,626 copies in 2008.[8]

Diário de Notícias had a circulation of 34,119 copies in 2011[12] and 29,054 copies in 2012.[13]
