Thirteen years ago research carried out by us, indicated that Middelburg and surrounding areas had room for another newspaper. Studies throughout the world suggest that mass communication must have a simple and clear message and project its mission with clarity. Middelburg needed such a communication tool, to reach out and revolutionize the mind-set of the people. It needed a paper that is unafraid to expose lies and deception, and remain committed to free and democratic reporting. This led to the founding of The Herald in Middelburg.
As technology progresses, so do we. Welcome to our online newspaper!
