Introduction to Cyprus Media:
Located on the southern side of Turkey, Cyprus is the third largest island in the Eastern Mediterranean region. This island country is divided into two sections- the Republic of Cyprus (RoC) and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). The country had been colonized twice by two empires- The Ottoman Empire and The British Empire.
The newspapers of a country give a brief insight into its history, culture, languages, and the lifestyle of its people. News can be consumed from any source, but it helps in developing the image of the country and its people. Whatever is happening in and around our country plays a huge role in shaping our future. Hence it is vital to know the history of Media in Cyprus to understand the present-day structure of Cyprus newspapers and news sites.
In Cyprus Island, newspapers played a considerable role in shaping their independence movement during the old times. Cyprus got its first printing house in the year 1878. It was established in Larnaca. Henry King Co. founded the printing house. The company published its first newspaper named Kipros/Cyprus. Aleksan Sarrafyan published the first newspaper in Ottoman Turkish called ‘Umid.’
In 1889, another paper was published by a Turk called the Saded in Ottoman Turkish.
The Turkish Cypriot intellectuals published many newspapers which were primarily influenced by the political happenings. The primary agenda of publishing was to bring the voice of Turkish Cypriots in light and to halt the union of Cyprus with Greece. In 1891, Zaman newspaper was published by a political club named ‘Osmanlı Kıraathanesi.’ During the reformation and innovation period of the Ottoman Empire, about 24 papers were published.
The printing press came to a halt from 1914 to 1919 due to the constant tensions between British authorities, the United Kingdom, and the Ottoman Empire. In 1919, Doğru Yol, he Söz and Vatan newspapers brought the new wave of print media. From 1934- 58, about 21 papers were published by Turkish Cypriots. To name a few were Halkin Sesi, Yanki, Haber, and Ses. The press played a crucial role between the years 1963 and 1974. It made many Turkish Cypriot voices heard worldwide.
Many prominent newspapers came into existence, such as Star Kibris, Kibris Postasi, Havadis, Kibris, Kakikat, Diyalog, Haberal Kibris, and many more. Many monthly and weekly magazines were also launched. A Bayrak Radio was begun by the Bayrak Radio and Television Corporation to enhance the news broadcasting horizon.
On 21 December 1973, Sait Terzioglu established the Turkish News Agency (TAK). The agency was started in favor of Turkish Cypriots as it declared their rights worldwide at its culmination. It became a great source of news in Cyprus. The agency is in the habit of publishing about 80 news articles and updates in one day. The company has a national and international audience spectrum.
The press helps in bringing the perfect reflection of a variety of political views, lives of people of Cyprus, and the national perspectives.
