M&G Media is a leading independent publishing company whose principal business is the dissemination of news, current affairs information, opinion pieces as well as all forms of advertising by way of print, online and other innovative media platforms.
The publication began as an alternative newspaper by a collection of journalists in 1985, after the closure of two leading liberal newspapers, The Rand Daily Mail and the Sunday Express. It was originally known as the Weekly Mail as the paper was not in a position to publish daily. With minimal initial capital on hand at the onset of the paper, it was funded by liberal professionals, academics and business leaders who contributed what they could to garner support for a fresh and independent publication in South Africa
Over the next 30 years, the publication nurtured its reputation and consistently gained traction in the market, thereby establishing international credibility and winning numerous awards both locally and internationally. Mail & Guardian has always been irreverent, bold and self‐opinionated in all matters, but with a special focus on all that is political
The publication’s values, which have been forged through history and evidenced by such events described above lend credibility to its independence, investigative prowess and editorial excellence.
