Moroccan Newspapers in English, French and Arabic


Newspapers in Morocco are primarily published in Arabic and French, and to a lesser extent in Amazigh (Berber), English, and Spanish.  Africa Liberal, a Spanish daily, was the first paper published in the country and was launched in 1820, followed by El Eco de Tetuán founded in 1860  also in Spanish. Al Maghrib was the first Arabic newspaper of the country and was established in 1886.  

The government of Morocco owns many key media outlets, including Moroccan radio and television, and the Moroccan press agency, Maghreb Arab Press.

Moroccans have access to approximately 2,000 domestic and foreign publications. Many of the major dailies and weeklies can now be accessed on their own Web sites. Morocco has 27 AM radio stations, 25 FM radio stations, 6 shortwave stations, and 11 television stations including the channels of the public SNRT, the mixed-ownership (half public-half private) 2M TV and the privately owned Medi 1 TV.

In 1999, the number of French language newspapers distributed in the country was 130,000 while it was 62,000 in 1981. As of 2013, 71% of the papers were published in Arabic and 27% in French.
