BudaPost signing off

June 23rd, 2024

Dear Readers,

It is with a mixture of gratitude and sadness that I announce the closure of BudaPost.

The foundation that funded our daily Hungarian press review in English and German for the past decade stopped supporting us in March last year and since then, my efforts to find a replacement have remained unsuccessful.

I am enormously grateful to my colleagues, Frank Fischer, Nick Thorpe, and Sebastian Garthoff who have continued producing BudaPost unpaid, daily, for 15 months.

I am also saddened to say goodbye to our tens of thousands of readers – both our English and German versions have consistently received between 11 thousand and 17 thousand hits daily this year.

Thank you very much for having been friends of BudaPost.

János Betlen
