The Kathmandu Post (Nepal)
Established in Feb 1993, the Kathmandu Post is Nepal’s first privately owned English broadsheet daily and it’s leading English language newspaper. The daily circulation of 82,000 copies makes the Post Nepal’s second-most widely circulated newspaper.
The Kathmandu Post is considered one of the most reliable publications for news, opinion and original content. It is a 16-page broadsheet that covers a wide variety of news, views and analyses and includes the Money section, a daily four-page pullout dedicated exclusively to business news. The newspaper’s Op-Ed section, which is widely followed, features columns by some of Nepal’s leading intellectuals, writers and experts from various sectors.
