History of Egyptian Journalism

The history of journalism started in ancient Egypt when heralds ran to pharaohs with oral reports and when town criers sang important announcements in public places.

Modern journalism in Egypt started with "Al Waqaea Al Masreya" the oldest newspaper in Egypt and the middle east, founded on December 3, 1828 by the Egyptian government in the era of Muhammad Ali in order to publish Egyptian decrees and news.

Non governmental newspapers started with the publication of "Wadi Al Nil" and "Al Ahram" which was founded in 1876 is considered one of the most distinguished papers in Egypt.

The syndicate of Egyptian journalists was founded in March 1941.
