David Montgomery has wasted no time making his mark in Denmark where he will soon be owner of the Berlingske Officin, part of his Orkla Media purchase. Kristine Lowe says the paper will launch a new freesheet, Dato, tomorrow and it is the brainchild of Monty.
It will join a list of existing and soon-to-be launched freesheets distributed in Copenhagen and Aarhus. It will be on the streets a day before 24timer (24hours) and will be followed on Monday by the afternoon Nyhedsavisen. It’s war, as Lowe, a Norwegian journalist, says.
