First Thing is Daily Maverick's morning newsletter that'll keep you informed, entertained and prepared for each work day. Each morning you'll get:

  • Fresh news from overnight that happened while you were sleeping
  • Important upcoming events for the day
  • Financial Indicators, Weather & random fact to impress friends
  • Latest Daily Maverick articles

On Saturdays you'll get a roundup of the week's news and a dose of cultural events on the go, with a list of our best read articles of the week on Sunday.

Recently introduced is our afternoon breaking news mailer. Sent around 3:00pm each day, we'll wrap up the big news stories for the day and let you know of any new Daily Maverick published articles.

Info Thing is a way to keep readers informed of our Daily Maverick events, initiatives and special offers to Daily Maverick readers. We only message you if it's absolutely worth your while.
