About Ladysmith Gazette

The Ladysmith Gazette is the only sold local newspaper in Ladysmith. The Ladysmith Gazette is just over a century old and is believed to have been established in 1902. This, however, cannot be accurately verified, as there may have been editions before this date. The Ladysmith Gazette is part of the Caxton Group of newspapers. The Ladysmith Gazette’s sister newspaper, the Times of Ladysmith, is a FREE door-to-door publication that helps the Ladysmith Gazette reach the entire community. With a staggering five Caxton Awards for excellence under its belt, few could argue that the Ladysmith Gazette is not the market leader in the region. Awards aside, the newspaper focuses on its core strength: the ability to communicate what is happening in and around Ladysmith. Since its inception over 100 years ago, it has kept people abreast of local news. From school news to hard news, the Ladysmith Gazette has constantly kept the community informed. Situated in the heart of the CBD, its staff have kept their finger on the pulse of what is happening not only in Ladysmith but also in surrounding areas including Bergville, Winterton, Colenso, Elandslaagte, Ezakheni, Steadville and Van Reenen.
