South Coast Herald

Once costing a mere “two pence” 8 decades ago, the South Coast Herald has stood the test of time, and today is widely regarded as a leader in the community newspaper industry. Indeed, we are thrice over recipients of the Caxton Group’s Best Sold Newspaper Award, and our readership will openly attest to the fact that we are renowned for the high quality of our journalism, photographs, letters, community insights, sports coverage and entertainment offerings.

The Herald reaches 15 500 South Coast residents each week, and the pagination of the publication averages between 80 and 100 pages of engaging content. Our distribution covers the KZN coastline from Mtwalume in the North to Port Edward in the south, and the inland areas of Harding and Kokstad. The Herald is widely regarded as being the flagship newspaper in its area of distribution.
