News, sports and entertainment

Unbiased journalism with a true impact is at the centre in TV 2, Norway’s leading commercial broadcaster. TV 2 delivers a wide range of public service programming, including daily news, current affairs, and documentaries. TV 2 is also behind TV 2 Nyhetskanalen, the only 24-hours news channel in Norway and the obvious first choice for breaking news. TV 2’s journalism and news programmes are thus an important part of Norwegian society and the public conversation. 

"In today's media climate where so-called mainstream media are accused of fake news and not taking people's problems seriously, it is extremely important to deliver relevant journalism. Our responsibility is to seek the truth. We need people's trust, and if we make mistakes, we correct them at once. It is important for me that TV 2's news journalism is courageous and goes against the stream. We need to tell strong stories, and not only showcase the problems but also the solutions," says Karianne Solbrække, News Director at TV 2.

Books with impact

Some of the best authors have found their home at our publishing houses Cappelen Damm in Norway and Lindhardt og Ringhof in Denmark, which publish books within fiction, non-fiction, translated fiction and children’s books. With teams of experienced, ambitious, and innovative editors, the two publishing houses work closely with all the different storytellers in developing their books and enabling them to reach a large audience.

“We love making books. We create stories, education, and learning. We publish books that have an impact on people when they read them. You might think that a printed book is an old-fashioned product, but actually it is a genius product. Because you can read a book without power, you can drop it on the floor, and you can read it out in the sun or give it as a present to a person you love. We sell more and more printed books, and we work with the visual expression of our books so when you give it as a present, you give something with aesthetics and character”, says Lars Boesgaard, CEO of Lindhardt og Ringhof.

“We need fiction because it creates empathy, identification, and recognition. Fiction might not make you less lonely, but we know that it makes you feel less alone”, adds Tine Kjær, Publishing Director of Cappelen Damm.
