The Beat

 

The winning formula of The post is unimpeachable coverage, creative advertising, arresting news, and a warm and big heart for community involvement, charity and upliftment of the less privileged communities. The Post is the ONLY Afrikaans/English community newspaper

which is disseminated in the areas; Bela Bela (Warmbaths), Modimolle (Nylstroom), Naboomspruit, Vaalwater, Settlers, Pienaarsrivier, Leeupoort, and Radium. The newspaper has been in existence since 1982 and has a unique interaction with its readers and advertisers. There have been several weeks where up to five (5) pages have been surrendered to readers' letters — definite proof that the community furnishes feedback on that which they read.
