Announcement: Post growth leads to rise in cover price

The cover price of The Phnom Penh Post will rise 500 riels to 3,000 riels. Post Media Ltd CEO Michel Dauguet said the company is passing on some of the extra costs incurred by the newspaper’s page growth as well as by recent increases in international newsprint costs. “With the introduction of new weekly sections such as 7Days and Education & Careers, the Post is 30 percent larger than when we re-launched as a daily in August 2008,” he said. “For many months we have been absorbing the extra cost of delivering more and better content to our readers. We have done this for as long as possible, but with the recent rise in the cost for our newsprint, which we source from Indonesia, some of these extra costs must now be passed on. We remain extremely good value at 3,000 riels.” Dauguet added that this is the first rise in cover price since the Post went daily. The price of Post Media Ltd’s Khmer edition of the Post will not change, he said, and those wishing to subscribe or extend their subscriptions may do so at current price levels until February 1.
