Merger on course

"Áššu" and contender "Min Áigi" announced on August 27, 2007 [ [http://www.nrk.no/kanal/nrk_sami_radio/1.3202540 NRK Sámi Radio: «Samiske aviser slås sammen» "(Sámi newspapers to merge).] ] , that they were to merge to allow the launch of a new daily newspaper in Sámi language, with a new editor-in-chief. The first issue of the new newspaper Ávvir was released on February 6, 2008.

This merger is seen by both parties as the only economic, realistic future, though the new paper will have higher production costs, said "Min Áigi" 's chairman Magne Svineng in a press conference. "Áššu" and "Min Áigi" will own each 33% of the new paper. The new title will keep the present bureaus in Kárášjohka and Guovdageaidnu.
