A good move. There is so much more stuff going on in Cambodia then when I got here a little over 5 years ago, so this will be awesome!
I used to look forward when I heard about fun events coming up, but these days I have to choose which ones I'll go to and which ones I'll regrettably have to miss because I can't be in 5 places at the same time.
This will start in less than 2 weeks! They will be calling it "Post Weekend."
In two weeks, The Phnom Penh Post will give our readers and advertisers something theyâ€™ve been asking for since I joined the Post in November 2011: a Saturday edition.
Post Weekend, which hits newsstands on June 14, is much more than an expansion of our popular 7Days brand, itâ€™s a commitment â€“ to expanded coverage, deeper analysis and a broader array of entertaining content.
Itâ€™s also a message: that Post Media believes in the Cambodian marketplace and intends to continue expanding and putting down roots across the media spectrum â€“ roots that extend back to our newspaperâ€™s beginning as Cambodiaâ€™s first English-language newspaper in 1992.
Since I assumed the role of publisher following Ross Dunkleyâ€™s official exit last year, the Post has undergone a series of exciting changes, each of them with an eye to future growth.
Key to these is the Post Weekend. When we decided to launch this ambitious project, we didnâ€™t have to look far to find the right man to lead it. Alan Parkhouse, who has helped launch several publications across the region, was quickly identified as the man with the experience and knowledge we needed to build a product we see as crucial to our expanding brand.
Heâ€™ll work alongside Gordon Watts, a 40-year veteran of the global newspaper scene who will serve as managing editor. Poppy McPherson, who has done a brilliant job in transforming 7Days into an intelligent and entertaining magazine, will continue to oversee the production of in-depth, original content as features editor.
Stepping into the role of editor-in-chief of our flagship Monday-Friday publication is Chad Williams. Chad has been the primary force behind our newsgathering operations since first joining the Post as national editor in October 2011, and I know he is as excited as I am about leading our award-winning newspaper to even greater heights.
Perhaps no more exciting change has taken place in my time here than our rapid expansion on the digital front. Since assuming the role of digital media director, David Boyle has relentlessly pushed and prodded Post Media in the direction of the future.
From overseeing a complete revamp of our website, to assembling a video team that is now producing captivating stories about Cambodiaâ€™s biggest issues, Daveâ€™s stewardship has seen our digital footprint grow by leaps and bounds.
With monthly page views topping two million, more than 215,000 fans on Facebook and a rapidly growing Twitter base of nearly 22,000 followers, the Post is reaching more readers in more formats than ever before.
And while the way we reach people will change over time, what we deliver never will â€“ content that is independent, intelligent, in-depth and inspirational.
To paraphrase a star from a century ago: â€œStick around, folks, you ainâ€™t seen nothinâ€™ yetâ€.

Going to sign up for a subscription as soon as they do some kinda of promotion (few months ago they were doing get 2 months free on a year promo but I just missed it by being unorganized)..anyhow, even at the current subscription rates it works out at 2100KHR a day and I noticed that the Daily are going up to 2000KHR (starting today?)
So, at those prices for me the Phnom Penh Post wins it and with the new weekend edition the choice is even easier.
