North Coast Courier

Family and community go hand in hand, so it should be no surprise that a family run publication has earned the trust and support of the community it serves.

The North Coast Courier was founded in 1985 by Bruce and Rose Stephenson, and over its 30 year history has grown into a publication that reaches an audience of 44 000 individuals. Understanding that the success of the publication resides in bringing community members news and entertainment that is reliable, credible and localised, the North Coast Courier team is dedicated to achieving the highest levels of journalistic excellence.

Distributed to the residents of the sunny town of Ballito Bay, the Courier is the largest community newspaper found on the fast growing Dolphin Coast. As Ballito has mushroomed over the past decade and become an increasingly important commercial hub on the South Coast, the Courier has become the medium of choice for local retail, classified and legal advertising.

Additionally, and in keeping with the times, the Courier has established a strong online presence, and in doing so, brings relevant community news to the World Wide Web. This is to say that with the Courier, a world of local news is never more than a click away.
