Les Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace
History and profileEdit
DNA was created in November 1877 as Neueste Nachrichten by German Heinrich Ludwig Kayser. It is part of East Burgundy group Rhone Alpes (EBRA), formerly France or East Media Group Est Républicain. Its principal owner is the press trust of the French banc Crédit Mutuel. Its headquarters is located at 17 rue de la Nuée-Bleue in Strasbourg since 13 July 1871.
Its daily circulation in December 2009 was 180,000 copies, 85% of subscriptions, making it the first newspaper in Alsace. It includes 18 local editions which is a record for a zone of restricted diffusion. The newspaper was until March 2012 also published in Standard German, although the Alsatian dialect is not a written language for the Alsatians German (about 10% prints).
