RND (RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland)
RND was founded in 2013 by MADSACK Media Group, one of Germany's largest publishing companies.
The RND portfolio comprises more than 30 regional daily newspapers (among them Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung, Leipziger Volkszeitung, Märkische Allgemeine). From its central newsroom in Hannover, RND offers complete newspaper pages as well as individual news articles, interviews, editorials and features with national and international scope to MADSACK papers and others for print and online publishing.
Main subjects of reporting include:
- Politics, Business & Economy
- People & Media
- Service & Lifestyle
- Arts & Culture
To ensure high quality reporting, RND draws on the expertise of its Berlin and Washington offices as well as a network of correspondents from around the globe. In addition to day to day business, RND offers supplements on travel, jobs, real estate and mobility on a weekly basis as well as a weekend special named sonntag.
The concept of networking through RND has helped a sizable number of regional dailies to shift energy and manpower towards local topics, while editorial independence is preserved: Every local newsroom is free to add more regionally focused content, to add individual opinion pieces, to request "made to order" stories, thus ensuring a great deal of individuality in the new landscape of regional newspapers.
