The Steelburger/Lydenburg News is the largest free newspaper in the Lowveld Media stable with a print order of 18 000 copies. The paper’s readership is wide ranging and diverse, and includes South Africans of all races and socio-economic groups. From the farming community on the Highveld to miners in Steelpoort and communities of the former homeland, Tubatse, the Steelburger’s readers trust the publication to report accurately on hard news, local news, local sports, community development projects and charities, crime, local governance, and entertainment.

The paper has been awarded the 2013 Sanlam MDDA Award for Best Free Sheet (corporate owned), which stands testament to the hard work of the publication’s entire team.

The Steelburger’s area of distribution includes two provincial governments (Mpumalanga and Limpopo), two district municipalities (Thaba Chweu and Greater Tubatse), and the towns of Lydenburg, Burgersfort, Ohrigstad and Steelpoort (and surrounds).
