Hello Thaiger



The time has come to say farewell to the Phuket Gazette brand name as The Thaiger continues to grow and evolve. From today one name, one brand – The Thaiger.

The Phuket Gazette has been a staple in Phuket’s media for a quarter of a century. Under the guidance of its founder and owner, John Magee, the paper reported Phuket’s growth for 24 years until it ceased publication in May last year. The Thaiger, along with our business partners, bought the digital assets of Phuket Gazette in July and relaunched in August with a new platform but with the same commitment to serve Phuket with the latest news and information along with our partner radio station The Thaiger 102.75 FM.

You will already notice that our web address has changed to Typing in will simply redirect you to the new website.

Although the name changes, our commitment to serve Phuket’s readers and listeners doesn’t. Indeed you will see a lot more articles and news than ever before as the website expands and the social media platforms diversify.

Importantly, we proudly remain guardians over the history of Phuket Gazette’s articles and digital newspapers stretching back to 1998. Check out the full archives of Phuket Gazette HERE.

Google was originally called BackRub, Pepsi started out as Brad’s Drink, Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo eventually became Sony, Nike started out as Blue Ribbon Sports. Times change and companies grow and so, too, The Thaiger. Also it’s better for everyone to have one brand, one logo and the least confusion. We call it ‘The Power of One’.

But be assured our heart is still in Phuket with a second office opening up in Kamala, two new Thaiger radio stations on the island, more Thai news for our growing local audience, new local staff and more services being introduced on our website focussed on Phuket. Phuket continues to grow and evolve and so do we.
