Our company is relatively young, without to boast of a robust history yet, which began when a group of individual journalists and social activists established The Philippine Examiner. Since then, our company earned a niche in the local community of publication, but we’ve always retained our grit, innovation and perseverance. Over the years, we joined with other regional newspapers each with their own history, strengths and character. We’ve grown from our limited resources and manpower. All through, these years, we have retained our fundamental purpose: we exist in order to add to the diminutive voice of our countrymen in the pursuit of the fragile and elusive freedom of press and media welfare in the countryside.
