Description: The first issue of the Nouvelliste was published on Tuesday November 17th 1903. Founded by Charles Haegler, the newspaper followed a conservative and Catholic line and from the start addressed all the Valais. In December 1929 it became the first Valais newspaper to be published daily; this explains in part its future success. In 1960, it merged with Le Rhône, and in 1968 it absorbed the Journal et feuille d’avis du Valais. Today, together with the Walliser Bote, it is the main Valais daily newspaper.
