MetroPost turns 24!

Your community newspaper, the Dumaguete MetroPost, is now 24 years old!

Founded in the year 2000, the MetroPost has weathered several storms, and has persisted in its quest to be a source of accurate information for the Dumaguete and Negros Oriental community, wherever they may be around the world.

The Dumaguete MetroPost is one of the nationally-awarded community papers in the Philippines (and the only one in Negros Oriental, mind you) that keeps cities and towns outside Manila connected through the coverage of local events, government activities, school happenings, and other news relevant to the area.

While national and foreign news outlets may cover major events, you may have noticed that we focus on issues directly affecting our community. We provide hyperlocal coverage tailored to the specific needs and interests of residents here.

Another goal of the MetroPost is to hold local governments, local businesses, and local institutions accountable by reporting on their actions and decisions. We aim to serve as watchdogs, ensuring transparency, and exposing corruption or wrongdoing when it occurs.

Not everyone relies on, or has access to digital news sources. We do provide essential information to those who may not have internet access or those who prefer the printed material, ensuring that a diverse range of community members can stay informed.

From time to time, advertisements and reader-generated content about their respective businesses, events, and initiatives get printed in our pages. This helps support the local economy, and fosters a sense of community pride and involvement.

The MetroPost also takes pride in how we are able to document local history, traditions, and culture, preserving them for future generations. We have featured stories about notable community members, landmarks, and events, helping to create a sense of identity and continuity within the locality.

We want to continue providing a platform for community members to voice their opinions, concerns, and ideas through letters-to-the- editor, opinion pieces, and community forums. This encourages civic engagement and dialogue within our small town.

Our slogan says it all: Empowering Communities through Information. We want to help our readers play a vital role in community-building by keeping them better informed, engaged, and enabled, making them an essential part of a healthy democratic society.
