History and profile edit

Täglich Alles was first published on 5 April 1992.[1][2] The founder of the paper was Kurt Falk[1][2] who also founded the weekly entertainment magazine Die Ganze Woche.[3] Oswald Hicker served as the editor-in-chief of the daily,[4] which had its headquarters in Vienna.[5]

Täglich Alles was a tabloid paper[6] which was described by Mari Pascua as a daily magazine.[1] It mostly covered short and less detailed news stories and extensive photographs.[7][8] The other characteristics of the paper were the use of big headlines, a colloquial language and the focus on sensational and gossip stories and scandals.[8] On the other hand, it also expressed views about some significant political events and objected to the EU membership of Austria.[9]

Täglich Alles had also a xenophobic discourse.[10] In a 1992 study on political orientation of the Austrian newspaper readers it was found that 46% of its readers had a xenophobic attitude.[11]

Due to its political stance, particularly its opposition to the European Union,[12] and sensationalist journalism the paper significantly lost advertising revenues.[2] Täglich Alles ceased publication in August 2000.[2][13]

Täglich Alles had a circulation of 500,000 copies in 1993, making it the second best-selling paper in the country.[14] In the period of 1995–1996 the paper had a circulation of 544,000 copies, making it the second best-selling paper after Neue Kronenzeitung.[15] Both papers reached more than 60% of the Austrian readers in 1996.[16]

In 1997 Täglich Alles was one of four most read newspapers in Austria.[17] In 1998 the paper sold nearly 390,000 daily copies.[5]
