Welcome to medianorway

On this website you can find facts and figures about media in Norway, published by the information service medianorway. You can also find information about our sources, as well as links to Norwegian and Nordic media websites. Our main website is in Norwegian and offers more comprehensive media statistics than you will find here.

medianorway is a public information centre located at the University of Bergen and financed by the Ministry of Culture. We compile Norwegian media statistics from a number of different sources and publish the data on Internet. Our objective is to document media trends and development in Norway.

medianorway participates in a Nordic collaboration to produce comparative media statistics for the Nordic countries, coordinated by the knowledge centre NORDICOM in Sweden. The results from the collaboration are published on Nordicoms website in news letters and under media statistics.

For an overview of the Norwegian media landscape we can recommend Hallvard Moe’s description at the website of Reuters Institute.
