The history of Új Magyar Szó can be traced back to 1947, when Romániai Magyar Szó ("Hungarian Word of Romania") was first published in Bucharest. In 1953 it changed its name to Előre ("Forward"), and it became the propaganda newspaper of the Communist Party. After the fall of Nicolae Ceauşescu, the name was changed back to Romániai Magyar Szó. In August 2005 Romániai Magyar Szó went bankrupt. Its successor was Új Magyar Szó, which was in print between 2005 and 2012. Since 2012, it appears only as an online edition.
