Rob Wijnberg is the founder and editor-in-chief of De Correspondent. At the age of 27, he became the youngest editor in chief of a national daily newspaper in Europe at nrc.next, the morning edition of leading Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad. Under Rob’s leadership, nrc.next reached a paid circulation record of 82,000 and a daily reach of 350,000, making it the most successful new newspaper in Europe. With his outspoken views on the role of news in modern society, Rob has attracted a large following. This support helped him to put his ideas into practice in founding De Correspondent.
