A new local news website, The Daily Maverick, has been launched in Beta. “The Daily Maverick is a unique blend of news, information, analysis and opinion delivered from our newsroom in Johannesburg, South Africa,” the website states.
The Daily Maverick is run by an independently owned, private company with no affiliation to any other media group and will be funded through advertising.
The Daily Maverick is the brainchild of the editorial team behind the now-defunct business magazine Maverick. “When the parent company of Maverick closed its doors, just before the global financial crisis and its accompanying recession started to bite, the editorial team turned its attention online,” the new website states.
