10 regional editions of the Heimat are published every Thursday…
The Vorarlberger Nachrichten (VN) is the most widely circulated daily newspaper in Vorarlberg.
The VN appears in both print and digital format Monday through Saturday, is read by people of all ages and backgrounds regardless of their ideological or political dispositions.It`s journalists report on political, economic and societal developments in Austria, Europe and the world, and analyze how these occurrences affect Vorarlberg. Local news and the people of Vorarlberg are the prime focus of the newspaper.
The VN lives up to the highest standards of journalism. Even with the layout, graphics, colour design and customer service – it sets international standards. An analysis carried out by the consulting company McKinsey on behalf of the World Association of Newspapers and Newspaper Publishers awarded the VN its top rating in the areas of “Know-How”, “Relationship with Customers and Advertisers” and “Journalistic Quality and Dependability”. In 2006 the VN was distinguished with the award of “Newspaper of the Year”.
In addition to the printed newspaper, the VN website also attracts readers. Since the layout is the same, readers can read the online edition just as comfortably as the printed edition and browse the latest from around the region and the world with ease. Relative to total circulation figures the VN has the highest digital circulation of any regional newspaper in Austria.
VN`s role in the region stretches beyond the newsroom. For years “Ma hilft”, the aid organization of the VN, has been helping the poorest in Vorarlberg. With the boost of thousands of readers` donations, “Ma hilft” delivers aid to those who are in poverty or are victims of natural disasters.
