The Danish capital is getting four or five new free daily newspapers in addition to the two freesheets already on the streets. One of the new dailies, Dato, published by Berlingske Officin, is already being distributed at key public outlets around the city and will soon be delivered to private households throughout Copenhagen and rhus. Another of the new free dailies, Centrum Aften, has begun distribution in Northern Jutland while the publishers of MetroXpress are planning an afternoon edition to complement their morning newspaper, which is one of the two original free Copenhagen dailies. Publishers JP/Politiken have just launched their 24Timer newspaper, while the publication of the fifth new entry, Nyhedsavisen from Icelandic media group Dagbrn, looks less certain as financial problems have forced the group to seek co-investors for the new paper. Media commentators predict the demise of one or more of the freesheets before the end of the year.
