Le Quotidien de Paris was a French newspaper founded in 1974 by Philippe Tesson (fr). Along with Le Quotidien du médecin (fr) and Le Quotidien du Pharmacien (fr), Le Quotidien de Paris made up the Groupe Quotidien (fr) (Daily Press Group) which employed over 550 individuals, with nearly all press organs now defunct. Philippe Tesson intended for it to be the successor to the daily newspaper Combat, of which he had been the editor-in-chief between 1960 and 1964. Combat included articles and editorials from a variety of opinions, as well as an in-depth coverage of cultural events in Paris. The survival of Le Quotidien de Paris during the 1980s and '90s was largely due to the success of another paper from the same publishing group, Le Quotidien du Médecin, which was run by Tesson's wife, Marie-Claude Tesson-Millet. In 1991 it distributed 35,000 newspapers across France. Its last issue appeared in 1996.
