Novel hoped that in the aged 47 Tempo still able to present an objective report that does not favor some group interest.

Tempo magazine first published on March 6, 1971. Tempo’s publishing was started by young people who dream to produce weekly news magazine. They were Goenawan Mohamad, Fikri Jufri, Christianto Wibisono, and Usamah. The dream was realized in 1969 by presenting a weekly news magazine called Express.

However, Express did not last long. Goenawan and his friends left in 1970 due to principle differences between the editorial and the capital owner. Thus PT Grafiti Pers established and published the first Tempo magazine in 1971.

Other than Novel Baswedan, Tempo anniversary was also attended by Marine Affairs and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti and a number of figures.
