"We are very proud of the editorial and digital efforts of our teams on a daily basis, in difficult circumstances, to ensure our communities stay informed. The statistics also show we do not only have a loyal local following, but also a national and international audience."
The Group Editors title websites are complemented by various social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – collectively with more than 250 000 followers. This is where our communities get to engage, interact and share their opinions with us and one another.
"We are so proud of our digital platforms," says online editor, Tanya Watson. "Being a trusted local news source has always been important, but even more so in trying times. Getting the news to our readers, as it happens, is our top priority."
