Øvre Smaalenene

Øvre Smaalenene was a Norwegian newspaper, published in Askim in Østfold county.

It was established as Askims Avis on 7 May 1902, but changed its name to Øvre Smaalenene (modern: "Upper Østfold") in 1903. The first year it was published by Ole Lingjærde and Fredrik Maseng with a Liberal Party affiliation. It was mainly politically independent after that.[1] and in addition to Askim it also covered the municipalities of Spydeberg, Hobøl and Enebakk.[2]

Its circulation was about 3,000 in the interwar period, then 4,933 in 1950, 6,460 in 1970 and 7,061 in 1983.[1] In 1990 it absorbed the somewhat smaller Østfold-Posten,[2] because both newspapers were bought by A-pressen, and the circulation rose to 9,505.[1] In 1997 it merged with the Mysen-based newspaper Indre Smaalenenes Avis, which continued, from 2003 under the name Smaalenenes Avis. However, the newspaper was moved back to Askim.[3]
