The Bogota Post: Your English Language Voice in Colombia
The Bogotá Post was launched in April 2014 following one of those conversations that are so common in the expat community: “Wouldn’t it be great if….”
Wouldn’t it be great if there was an English language newspaper like the ones we’d read in other countries? Wouldn’t it be great to pull together a really comprehensive listings section so that people knew what was happening? Wouldn’t it be great to have regular printed news in English? To be able to give context to bigger issues in Colombian life and politics?
And so, with an exclusive interview with Martin McGuinness, The Bogotá Post was born. Two years later and the paper has gone from strength to strength, with more and more content, an ever growing community of contributors and a readership of about 15,000 people every edition.
We are building a reputation for providing balanced, trustworthy information about the city and country, including a full listings page.
The paper is popular with Colombians who have lived abroad or are studying English as well as with the increasing numbers of resident foreigners and tourists in the country.
When we talk about wanting to be ‘your voice’, we mean it. We want the newspaper to reflect different and interesting perspectives on life here – we want it to be at the heart of this growing and changing community.
