The first Armenian printing house in Istanbul was set up in 1567 by Armenian arrivals from Venice. The publication of the Tidak Puzantayan newspaper in 1812 marked the birth of the Armenian press.

Istanbul is home to a number of long-running Armenian publications. Of these, "Jamanak" and "Marmara" have a long tradition of preserving Turkish Armenian literature, an integral part of Western Armenian culture.

 

Jamanak

Jamanak (Armenian: Ժամանակ, "Time") is the longest continuously running daily newspaper in Turkey, its first issue having appeared on 28 October 1908. The paper is a family establishment. Misak Kocunyan was Jamanak's first editor, generations of Kocunyans having followed in his footsteps. Since 1992 the paper is run by Ara Kocunyan.
