Heartbeat of the Western Cape

The online newspaper updates South African, regional Africa, and world news, in addition to business reports.

News of the South African government is prominent, given that Cape Town hosts the national parliament.

Title: Cape Town Express


Mission: Cape Town Express was conceived in September 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Cape Town Express, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city, and metro area. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Cape Town Express and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.

Associated sites include: Mediterranean Times | Kenya Star | Madagascar Sun | Nigeria Sun | Sierra Leone Times | Zimbabwe Star | Africa Leader | Johannesburg Life
