The Legacy Lives On
The Phuket Gazette was 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 its long-running print run in April 2017, the digital assets of the website, social media pages and YouTube live on under new management called The Thaiger.
The Thaiger Co. Ltd started in Phuket in October 2016, initially as a new FM radio station for the island. The Thaiger is now registered in Singapore and provides Thailand with the next generation of media – news, lifestyle, restaurant reviews, Top Tens, travel info, free classifieds and the best property portal in the country, not to mention a world-class medical tourism booking platform and jobs portal in English and Thai.
The Thaiger now provides comprehensive news pages in English and Thai, a local FM radio station in Phuket, three Facebook pages, a YouTube channel, Instagram, Twitter and many more ways to get your Thaiger updates (see full list below).
Initially based in Phuket, The Thaiger is now a Thailand-wide portal providing a daily one-stop-shop for news, information and lifestyle.
