THE voice of your community – Pietermaritzburg Echo — celebrates a milestone this June as we turn a whopping 40 years old!

As a team, we are extremely proud of this achievement and have planned a series of events to showcase via the newspaper as we countdown to our birthday.

Technically, our birthday is in June but, because the Echo has such a rich history among the communities of Pieter­maritzburg, celebrations will continue with you — the reader and client — right up until September.

Prepare yourself for a blast from the past every fortnight with interviews with old and loyal readers, stories which made headlines years ago, features, client success stories, the team behind Pietermaritzburg’s leading community title, as well as competitions and giveaways.

Four decades is a long time, and although there have been changes within the media industry, the Echo is still standing strong and it’s all thanks to you — our readers and clients — for always choosing Echo.
