The first issue of the Swiss tabloid «Blick» was published on October 14, 1959 with a circulation of 48 thousand copies. The newspaper was filled with rumors, political scandals, provocative articles, exclusive materials, crime and other «sensitive» topics from everyday life in Switzerland, which reputable publications preferred to avoid. The name of this Zurich newspaper can be translated from German as «Glare», «Flash», «Reflection», «Lightning».

This was the first experience of publishing a typical tabloid press in Switzerland. It is not surprising that the newspaper was soon hit by a wave of criticism and indignation from dissatisfied readers, and there were even attempts to close the publication. Despite the difficulties, the popularity of «Blick» grew at an extraordinary pace, just a year later its daily circulation set the first record in Switzerland — 200 thousand copies. In the following years, the circulation only increased. In the 1980s, the newspaper used Bingo lottery cards to attract new readers. In the early 1990s, the popularity of «Blick» began to decline, however, in 1995, the newspaper's editorial board was able to set a new circulation record — more than 335 thousand copies.

Since 2008, an abridged version of this tabloid «Blick am Abend» has been published in Switzerland, and it is distributed in the evening as a free advertising and information newspaper.
