The Legacy Lives On
The Phuket Gazette has been the island’s legacy media since 1993, the first island newspaper. It was owned, managed and nurtured for the entire time by island long-termer John Magee.
Although the newspaper closed it’s long-running print run in April 2017, the digital assets of the website, social media pages and YouTube live on under new management.
The Thaiger Co. Ltd started in Phuket in October 2016, initially as a new FM radio station for the island. The Thaiger, along with a Singaporean digital media company, are now in partnership to provide Phuket with the next generation of media – news, lifestyle, restaurant reviews, Top Tens, travel info, free classifieds and the best property portal on the island with over 9,200 properties listed for Phuket alone.
Phuket Gazette and The Thaiger now provide a comprehensive news page, in English and Thai, the island’s favourite FM radio station, three Facebook pages, a YouTube channel, the island’s biggest foodie website and the property page ‘Thaiger Property’.
We also host ‘Thaiger Today’, Thailand’s most watched daily online TV news program.
