Azadiya Welat (Kurdish)

Azadiya Welat is the only daily published in Kurdish. Following a 1991 law that legalised Kurdish language publications, a Kurdish weekly named Welat was launched in Istanbul on 22 February 1992. Subsequently closed down, the weekly changed its name in to Azadiya Welat in 1996. It has been publishing since, albeit with some interruptions (due to court-imposed bans). In 2003 the paper moved its headquarters from Istanbul to Diyarbakir and in 2006 it began to appear as a daily. The paper is distributed across the country and has a circulation between 4000 and 10000.

Apoyevmatini (Greek)

Apoyevmatini, or "Mid-afternoon," has been publishing since 1925. The four-page newspaper currently comes out as a weekly. Its editor in chief is Mihail Vasiliadis. Vasiliadis' philosophy when he took over the paper in late 2002 was to have it appear in every Greek household in Istanbul. Of the 580 issues that are published each week, 550 are delivered to Greek families in Istanbul.

 

Iho (Greek)

Iho, or echo, started in 1977 as a bi-weekly. Two years later it became a daily newspaper. The six-page daily sells around 500 copies. Iho, like Apoyevmatini, has a great symbolic significance but little journalistic outreach. Almost all subscribers are Istanbul-based Greeks.
