She says it was started in 2011
with community members decid-
ing to tackle problems in the area
with nine projects.
We realised that people have to
become proud of who they are,
what they are capable of and how
they can play a part in making a
difference, she says.
So we decided to create interest
in gardening, safety awareness,
home care, sports, dancing, music,
drama, fitness and fundraising.
All these programs are to keep

What if Peoples Post wasnt a
newspaper, but a broadcasting
What if you werent bound to
listen to hyper-local news im-
pacting on the suburb you live
in, but rather the southern sub-
urbs as a whole?
Would this contradict what
Peoples Post stands for?
Followers of the newspaper
on Facebook would have no-
ticed a new feature a weekly
wrap-up video posted every
In this short video some of
the articles that appear in the
newspaper are highlighted,
giving you the biggest weekly
news from the southern sub-
urbs in bite-sized chunks. Some
broadcasters bring you global
news, some focus on a particu-
lar city, but no-one targets a relatively
small area such as the southern suburbs.
This means, of course, that the newspa-
per continues to set the bar of hyper-local
content across all mediums.
The same concept has been embraced by
TygerBurger,Peoples Posts sister publica-
tion in the northern suburbs.
One of TygerBurgers journalists, Bren-
den Ruiter, asked himself how one could
spread the news in a digital world, and
make it as easy as possible for Facebook
users to stay up to date.
The answer was simple. Why not a
weekly news bulletin? We started a few
weeks ago and the videos popularity is for
all to see. Its still a work in progress, of
course, with finer details still being ironed

In essence it is a news broadcast with a
very brief description of the chosen articles.
If one snippet piques your interest then you
can read more about it on the newspapers
free website under the News24 domain.
Peoples Post journalist and bulletin pre-
senter Samantha Lee says the additional
challenge has been an exciting venture thus
It is no secret that news and the media
aremoving into a digital space. This venture
helps us satisfy the news needs of those on
the move and assists our journalists in tell-
ing the inspiring stories of others that may
not have made it into the readers relevant
editions. The response thus far is an indica-
tion that this truly is a step in the right direc-
tion for our publications.
