Headquarters of the Aargauer Zeitung


The newspaper was created in 1996 from the merger of Aargauer Tagblatt and Badener Tagblatt . The editorial office is based in Aarau , where the newspaper is also printed.

Since January 2002, the Aargauer Zeitung has been part of a newspaper association that first called itself Mittelland-Zeitung and was renamed to az complete edition in September 2010, to Northwest Switzerland in September 2012 and finally to az Northwestern Switzerland in June 2014 . She gets the coat with the national news from az Northwestern Switzerland.

The local reporting takes place in five different editions for the regions Aarau / Lenzburg / Wynental / Suhrental, Baden / Zurzach, Brugg, Freiamt and Fricktal .

Since October 31, 2014, the newspaper in the Baden area has been called the Badener Tagblatt again .

From September 2007 to February 2017, the Sunday newspaper Switzerland appeared on Sunday (until 2013 Sunday ) as the seventh edition of az Nordwestschweiz and thus the Aargauer Zeitung . Since March 4, 2017, az Nordwestschweiz has been issuing an expanded weekend edition on Saturdays for the association's newspapers under the name Schweiz am Sonntag .

In 2018, AZ Medien brought the Aargauer Zeitung and the other newspapers it owned from the association az Nordwestschweiz into the joint venture CH Media , which was founded with the NZZ-Mediengruppe and which is owned equally by both groups. The joint venture also includes the regional newspapers of the NZZ media group St. Galler Tagblatt and Luzerner Zeitung as well as the radio and TV stations of both companies and other business units. CH Media went into operation on October 1, 2018.
