What type of news is covered

Being a community newspaper only local news and people are featured in the Port Elizabeth Express and Express Indaba. The newspapers strive to be the eyes and ears of everyone in Port Elizabeth and there is a strong emphasis on community news that affects readers' daily lives such as municipal matters and crime news. Port Elizabeth Express and Express Indaba are also a platform for those who make a difference in the community they work and live in. School news, events and entertainment news are also covered extensively. Our popular diary/dagboek section gives non-profit organisations such as schools, churches, clubs and charities a vehicle to promote their events.

Watter soort nuus word gedek

Aangesien PE Express ‘n gemeenskapskoerant is, word daar slegs oor plaaslike nuus, kwessies en mense berig. Die koerant het ten doel om die oë en ore van almal in Port Elizabeth te wees en die klem word gelê op gemeenskapsnuus wat lesers se daaglikse lewe direk beïnvloed, veral munisipale aangeleenthede asook misdaad. Port Elizabeth Express is ook ‘n platform vir diegene wat ‘n verskil maak in die gemeenskap. Skole- en vermaaklikheidsnuus word ook omvattend gedek. Die koerant se immergewilde Dagboek gee aan nie-winsgewende organsisasies soos skole, kerke, klubs, steungroepe en liefdadigheidgsorganisasie die geleentheid om hul projekte en funksies te adverteer.
