Estonia: Ekspress Grupp to stop publishing Eesti Päevaleht in print

Estonian media group Ekspress Grupp will stop publishing its daily newspaper, Eesti Päevaleht, in print as of April 2024, ERR reports. Ekspress Grupp said that the move was due to changes in consumer behaviour. Eesti Pävaleht will continue as a digital publication under the DELFI news portal’s opinion, culture, and weekend sections. Eesti Päevaleht’s print circulation stood at just 7,985 in December 2023, which was down from 15,100 in January 2019. Priit Hõbemägi, editor-in-chief of daily Postimees, said that Ekspress Grupp’s decision would lead to a contraction of the “public forum of opinion” in Estonian media. Postimees continues to be published in print.
