Following the liberation of Paris in August 1944, Emilien Amaury and fellow members of the resistance movement founded Le Parisien Libéré, which became Le Parisien in 1986. Initially a regional daily newspaper, it became a nationwide publication in 1994 with the creation of  Aujourd’hui en France.

Le Parisien has progressively expanded its presence across all media channels.

In addition to a special business and economy supplement each Monday, Le Parisien publishes a weekend section on Friday, as well as a monthly women’s magazine, La Parisienne. The website and mobile applications enable readers to access complete news and an array of services anywhere, at any time.

Le Parisien provides its readers with comprehensive information thanks to a team of 400 journalists, including 140 who work for the 9 regional editions (Paris, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, Val-De-Marne, Yvelines, Essonne, Val d’Oise, Seine-et-Marne, Oise).
