Khabarnegaran.info-Niki Azad: Isfahan – an ancient city in central Iran – has a long tradition of newspapers. The first newspaper, Farhang, was published about 136 years ago on April 24, 1879 at the behest of Isfahan ruler Zell-e Sultan. Today, several newspapers, most notably Isfahan-e Ziba (owned by Isfahan Municipality) and Nasl-e Farda, and a few weekly magazines are published in Isfahan. Farid Salavati started his career as a journalist at Navid Isfahan weekly magazine, where his father was the managing director. He freelanced for Ettelaat, reformist Mardom Salari and later-banned Salam daily newspapers. He is now the Vice-President of Isfahan Journalists Association, one of the few remaining independent journalist associations in the country.
