The Top 40 under 40 is a showcase of local business talent under the age of 40 compiled by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber (NMBBC).
Louise Liebenberg (37) is the Assistant Editor on the Weekend Post newspaper.
Louise Liebenberg knows only too well the pressures on the print media the world over. She’s ready, though, to take on the challenge of attracting new and younger readers with what appears to be characteristic gusto. “We’re constantly exploring ways to keep our product interesting and relevant to our readers,” says the Weekend Post’s dynamic Assistant Editor.
She recently celebrated a decade in the Avusa Media stable, joining the group as a senior reporter back in 2001 and serving as News Editor at the Weekend Post in her twenties. Now, she and her team – who consistently rake in awards for their news coverage – are putting considerable energy into the use of social media, the possibilities of which Liebenberg is particularly excited about.
She brings her love of good food to the people of the Eastern and Southern Cape through her own blog and weekly column, The Global Table, which sees her and husband Salvelio Meyer chatting to foodie personalities, and enjoying the best that local chefs have to offer. “It’s a complete labour of love,” says Liebenberg. “Food and dining are an important aspect of Weekend Post’s popular MyWeekend lifestyle supplement, and so the blog ties in perfectly.”
