History and profileEdit
Ságat was founded in Vadsø in 1957 and moved to Lakselv in 1981, where it still is based today. The editor since 1978 has been Geir Wulff. The paper was published five days per week. Later it became a daily newspaper.
Ságat had a circulation of 2,717 copies in 2007. Although the original idea of the newspaper was that it should have articles written in both Sámi and Norwegian, today it uses Norwegian almost exclusively in its articles.
