List of Malayalam-language newspapers

Malayalam is a language spoken in India, predominantly in the state of Kerala. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages of India and was declared a classical language by the Government of India in 2013. Rajyasamacharam was the first newspaper in Malayalam. This was started for religious propagation by Hermann Gundert under the Christian missionaries of Basel Mission in June 1847 from Illikkunnu in Thalassery. Pashchimodayam was the second newspaper in Malayalam. It started in October 1847 from Thalasseri. Deepika, the oldest Malayalam newspaper now in circulation, was established in 1887. Malayala Manorama, Mathrubhumi, Madhyamam, Deshabhimani, and are the other major newspapers in Malayalam. Malayala Manorama holds the record for the largest selling regional language newspaper in India. It is also the 11th most circulating newspaper in the world.

Pradeepam, published from Kozhikode since 1957, is the oldest eveninger in Malayalam. Other major evening dailies are Rashtra Deepika and Kerala Kaumudi Flash.
