The Northglen News enjoys the thoroughly deserved distinction of being the widest read community-based newspaper operating within the northern haunts of Durban. With an audience that crosses several generational lines, the publication continually seeks to build upon the trust-based relationship it has established with its readers, knowing that as a valued member of the communities it serves, readers look to it for accurate and reliable reporting. The Northglen News specialises in covering local and community news, local sports fixtures and results, schools news, local entertainment and more.
The paper’s editorial team strongly believes that news items published should be a reflection of the people they represent, cementing this effort through on-going engagement with contacts that include policemen, environmentalists, teachers and even school pupils. Founded more than 40 years ago, the Northglen News also runs sought-after classifieds pages that are the “go-to section” for small advertisers and announcements.
Simply put, the publication is the news hub, notice board, mirror and mouthpiece of the Durban North/ uMhlanga area, and further, is firmly committed to maintaining the highest standards when it comes to credible and relevant news.
Being a multi-generational medium, the Northglen News has established an impressive online presence, making its content freely available on the World Wide Web. This ensures that breaking stories are posted as they happen and are always just a few clicks away. Its social media platforms are well-subscribed to, and have become an important conduit of information for many.
The Northglen News offers advertisers access to a large shopping community in the north Durban area, and is a powerful marketing avenue for those looking to reach their preferred target market.
