Maariv (Hebrew: מַעֲרִיב, lit. Evening) is a Hebrew language daily newspaper published in Israel. It is second in sales after Yedioth Ahronoth and third in readership after Yedioth Ahronoth and Israel HaYom. In a TGI survey comparing the last half of 2009 with the same period in 2008, Maariv saw its market share fall slightly from 13.8 to 13.6 percent. In July 2010, a TGI survey of the media reported that Maariv's daily exposure rate fell from 14.1% to 13.1% and its weekend edition dropped from 18.2% to 16.1% in the last six months.
Maariv's editor in chief is Yoav Tzur who succeeded Doron Galezer and Ruth Yuval who quit in protest of continued budget cutbacks.
Apart from the daily newspaper and its supplements, the Maariv media group (Ma'ariv Holdings Ltd) has a chain of local newspapers with a national scale distribution, a magazines division, and a semi-independent website called NRG, which includes much of the print content. The company's shares are listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange since 1990 (TASE: MARV).
For many years, the Nimrodi family held a controlling stake in Maariv and Yaakov Nimrodi served as its chairman. In March 2010, Zaki Rakib bought a 50% share from Israel Land Development Company and Ofer Nimrodi, bringing new energy and much needed cash infusion to the newspaper which has been losing millions of shekels a year since 2004. Rakib became the new chairman. However, it was announced in March 2011 that Nochi Dankner was to take control of Ma'ariv through his Discount Investment. On March 25 Discount transferred NIS20 million to the struggling firm.
