Frankfurter Rundschau

The Frankfurter Rundschau was hit particularly badly by the media crisis. In May 2004 the SPD-owned media holding company DDVG bought a 90 percent stake in the company. In 2006 Cologne publishers M. DuMont Schauberg bought 51 percent. In 2010 the paper was produced by the DuMont editorial collective, in 2012 it was on the verge of being discontinued but was taken over by Frankfurter Societät, the FAZ publishing house and the Karl Gerold foundation, and a mimimal editorial team was kept on. Since 2013 production is completely back in Frankfurt and the paper has been in profit since 2014.
