Mass media of Germany includes a variety of online, print, and broadcast formats, such as radio, television, newspapers, and magazines.

History

The modern printing press developed in Mainz in the 15th century, and its innovative technology spread quickly throughout Europe and the world. In the 20th century period prior and during World War II, mass media propaganda in Nazi Germany was prevalent. Since the 1980s a "dual system of public and commercial" broadcasting has replaced the previous public system.[1]

Books

Magazines

Many in Germany read the weekly Der Spiegel.[1]

Newspapers

As of 2015, widely read national newspapers include Süddeutsche Zeitung, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Die Welt, and Bild.[2] "Germans are voracious readers of newspapers and periodicals.... The economic state of Germany’s several hundred newspapers and thousands of periodicals is enviably healthy. Most major cities support two or more daily newspapers, in addition to community periodicals, and few towns of any size are without their own daily newspaper."[1]

Radio

The first "radio program in Germany was broadcast on October 29, 1923, in Berlin."[2]
