We have quite a few, but the TOP Jamaican newspapers are probably the ones below.
And they don't occupy the top spots by chance, they are genuinely the more reputable and established newspapers.
They deliver responsible, high quality impartial reporting- on news and current happenings in Jamaica.
You get the usual; news, sports, politics, commentary, lifestyle, business, editorial, letters, classifieds and all!
By the way, both now have mobile applications. The blackberry ones can be found at Blackberry World. I have both on my blackberry phone, although, admittedly, I use the Observer app more then the Gleaner's. The Observer application is a lot more nifty and clean - to me.
That said, I never miss my Sunday Gleaner, the hard copy! And I can safely say it is also the most sought after Sunday paper here- primarily for it's 'Careers' section, which shows vacancies and job openings across the country.
Other notable local newspapers include:
Another notable resource, although not a newspaper, is the government owned Jamaica Information Service (JIS).
It provides loads of information on current news and happenings in Jamaica. If you can't get around to all of them, don't miss the JIS.
