Das Magazin

The magazine (formerly Tages-Anzeiger magazine Nickname: Tagi - Magi ) is the weekend supplement of four daily newspapers in the German-speaking Switzerland. It appears in Zurich at the publishing house of Tamedia AG. Editor in chief since 2007 Finn Canonica, its predecessor was Res Strehle.


The magazine was originally only in the Tages-Anzeiger; Since January 2005, it will also resolve the Basler Zeitung and Berner Zeitung and their split expenses. Since 2009 it is also the newspaper at The Bund. It reaches 2010, a free circulation of 451'788 copies. In digital form, the journal for subscribers of daily newspapers via the website is accessible. An iPad version, which already appears one day earlier, includes additional material such as articles, videos, photo galleries, extended interviews, etc. compared to the print edition.

The magazine is a magazine writer. It maintains major reports and essays and places value on a stand-alone imagery. Example is the New York Times Magazine.

The magazine was founded in 1970 under Otmar Bucher, who had designed the layout and concept for the first 28 issues led the design line. Authors such as Niklaus Meienberg, Peter Bichsel and Laure Wyss shaped the sheet. From this period dates the introduction of the open interviews. In this new form of the interview, the interviewer decided not to express his own opinions by the line of questioning. He lays her instead in short declarative sentences open dar. This form has survived to this day in the magazine and is meanwhile also in other Swiss publications lively imitation.

A delicate phase saw the magazine in 2000, when it became known that the long-term employees Tom Kummer had invented interviews with Hollywood stars. However, the affair had no consequences for the editorship - unlike the SZ magazine - because she had finished working with the forger after the first signs immediately.
