Bangkok Post

Bangkokpost

2018 marked the 72nd anniversary of the Bangkok Post, a publication that has been steadfast in its duty and commitment to being a responsible media outlet serving the country and society.

Throughout the history of the country’s oldest newspaper, the Bangkok Post has witnessed Thailand’s rise to prominence and significance on the global stage, in terms of economics, society, and politics.

As Thailand’s leading English-language daily, the Bangkok Post has been a window to Thailand, where accurate and reliable news reports about the country are presented to readers around the world through a variety of platforms in addition to the print media.

The Bangkok Post has consistently developed its content so that it can be effectively offered through online and digital outlets, including the paper’s webpage, Facebook account, digital newspaper and smartphone.

In 2018, the Bangkok Post’s online news outlets saw a marked expansion, evident from surging revenues and page views. The website records an average of 200,000 page views and is accessed by 62,000 people daily. It has also clocked up more than 946,000 Facebook followers.

Throughout the year, the website reported more than 77.29 million page views and was accessed by around 11.15 million people, according to Google Analytics.

Importantly, viewers of the website spend an average of 5.26 minutes viewing pages, compared to an average time of 2-3 minutes for local news websites, according to Truehits.net, Thailand’s only independent website-tracking service.

The figures reinforce how the Bangkok Post’s news reports and content, available through its various platforms, have won the trust of readers both within and outside the country.

For the printed paper, 2018 was another challenging year, as was the case for many newspapers around the world, since it faced intense pressure from a whirlwind of new media reflecting a shift in audience behaviour.

Nonetheless, the Bangkok Post remains an authoritative news media. The paper continues to be well-received by its readers, including government and business leaders, who have participated in many activities the paper has sponsored.

In 2018, the Bangkok Post put together a range of activities, and the response of readers and sponsors has been outstanding. These include a charity mini marathon, the proceeds of which were donated to support the education of needy children through the Bangkok Post Foundation.

There was also the Bangkok Post Forum, an annual seminar, and the Bangkok Post International Forum, which reaped much success as its panel of speakers was joined by ministers, leaders of foreign governments and heads of international organisations.

This shows the credibility the Bangkok Post has gained in the eyes of international readers.

The year ahead looks nothing short of monumental, with the coronation of His Majesty the King set to take place from May 4-6, and the first general election in five years.

Diplomacy-wise, Thailand has assumed the chairmanship of Asean, succeeding Singapore.

The Bangkok Post stands ready to report landmark events for the world, with steadfast adherence to media ethics and professionalism, for which it has made its mark as “the newspaper you can trust”.
