Funke Media NRW – Funke Media Group Title

Strong media in just one combination 

FUNKE MEDIA Nordrhein-Westfalen’s titles permeate the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region like no other media company. That makes them a unique and, above all, strong partner. The 5 titles reach 1.60 million people in the circulation area. (Source: ma TZ 2022). 

Our portfolio
Information | Opinion | Entertainment. 

NRW is the most populous and densely populated of all 16 German states. A diverse and colorful state. This is reflected in the media portfolio of FUNKE MEDIEN in North Rhine-Westphalia: With a rich editorial offering at the highest journalistic level, we meet the demands of the people in NRW for information and entertainment, for quality and variety. Every day, on all channels. 

Daily newspapers 

The region’s leading daily newspaper titles are the flagship and traditional heart of FUNKE’s media in North Rhine-Westphalia. Every day, they provide millions of people with the latest news, analyses and background information. With their credible and journalistically high-quality reporting, they make an important contribution to journalistic diversity and the basic supply of information to citizens. They accompany the people of North Rhine-Westphalia through their everyday lives, helping them to classify events and form an opinion. 

Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ)

The Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung is not only the origin of today’s FUNKE MEDIENGRUPPE – it is also Germany’s largest regional newspaper. It is the leading daily newspaper in the metropolitan areas of Essen, Bochum, Gelsenkirchen, Duisburg, Oberhausen and Mülheim. In its entire circulation area – from southern Münsterland to Niederberg, from the Lower Rhine to the Unna area – WAZ reaches around one-third of the population. 

Neue Ruhr/Rhein Zeitung (NRZ)

Opinionated, independent, close to the people. The NRZ is the metropolitan medium for the Rhenish Ruhr region and the state capital of Düsseldorf, and also the hometown newspaper for the Lower Rhine region between Kleve and Moers. With its in-depth and serious reporting, the NRZ provides information on everything that is important locally, regionally and in the world. 

Westfalenpost (WP)

„Voice of the homeland – echo of the world“ is the title of Westfalenpost, founded in 1946. As the largest newspaper in South Westphalia, it is still commited to this reputation today: Westfalenpost sees itself as a mouthpiece and advocate for the people in the region, and at the same time as a civic quality newspaper with the perfect mix of information and entertainment. Every day it bridges the gap from neighborhood festivals to big politics, from the Sauerland to the celebrity beach. The WP, as readers call it in short and familiar terms, is the local paper with heart, mind and foresight.  

Westfälische Rundschau (WR)

The Westfälische Rundschau with its headquarters in Dortmund, has been published since 1946. Its circulation area extends from the metropolitan area of Dortmund through the eastern Ruhr region and into southern Westphalia. The WR offers comprehensive local reporting in the independent cities of Dortmund and Hagen, in the districts of Unna, Olpe, Siegen-Wittgenstein, Hochsauerlandkreis and Märkischer Kreis. To this end, it cooperates with other publishing houses and newspapers, including the Westfalenpost (WP), which also belongs to FUNKE MEDIEN NRW. 

Iserlohner Kreisanzeiger* (IKZ)

Iserlohn, Letmathe and Hemer – three cities, three local sections. Even though Letmathe has been part of the Iserlohn city area since 1975,  the IKZ offers Iserlohners, Letmathers and Hemeraners their own local section. With its offering, the IKZ provides citizens in Iserlohn and the surrounding area with the latest news, competent analyses and important background information from the region, Germany and the world.
