The publication’s editorial team has worked tirelessly to achieve high standards of journalistic excellence, and continually strives to not only maintain its status as the leading local title, but also to build upon the trust-based relationship it has established with its loyal readers.
The Heilbron Herald is widely regarded as the area’s foremost source of community and local news, local sports results and fixtures, agricultural news, schools and church news, municipal and police news, lifestyle news, entertainment and more. It is also worth noting that the Heilbron Herald caters for a diverse audience, and aims to provide something interesting for all its readers.
The newspaper encourages robust public dialogue by giving readers the opportunity to engage with the publication and its contents by voicing their opinions on matters of importance.
The Heilbron Herald’s primary vision is to be an independent newspaper that meaningfully serves its community by providing, without fear or favour, news that matters. The newspaper is a primarily Afrikaans medium publication, and currently has a print order of 2 500 copies that are distributed to doorsteps every Friday. Additionally, the extensive and professional advertising inserts provide an economically active market with news regarding retail and service offerings, shopping specials and those all-important bargains. This is to say that the Heilbron Herald acts as a virtual shopping mall where shopping decisions are made.
