    The Media List - South Africa’s most trusted Media Contacts Database.

The Media List

The Media List is South Africa’s leading media organisation and editorial contacts directory – an affordable, up- to-date, detailed, accurate and reliable online database.

It is the preferred editorial personnel database and electronic media release distribution system for communications professionals throughout Southern Africa.

Listings include everything from X, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels to target audience LSM figures, circulation details and email addresses.

There’s also a real-time X Influencer Index which shows you who has the most leverage on the popular social media platform.

The Media List is designed to work the way that you do – it’s fully customisable so media and editorial personnel contacts can be arranged in any grouping you require. Groups can be campaign-, region-, client-, or date-specific – or organised in any configuration or combination you need. Data is dynamic so any changes are updated automatically.
