The Phnom Penh Post (Khmer: ភ្នំពេញបុស្តិ៍) is a daily English-language newspaper published in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Founded in 1992 by publisher Michael Hayes and Kathleen O'Keefe, it is Cambodia's oldest English-language newspaper. It is printed in full-color tabloid format. The Phnom Penh Post is also available in Khmer language.[1] It previously published a weekend magazine, 7Days, in its Friday edition.[2] Since July 2014, it has published a weekly edition on Saturdays called Post Weekend.[3]

It has a staff of Cambodian and foreign journalists covering national news. The newspaper includes specific business, lifestyle and sports sections, and also prints a "Police Blotter", which has items related to crime translated from local Khmer-language dailies.

Since its founding in Phnom Penh in July 1992, the printed edition was formerly published on a fortnightly basis, and read in Cambodia and worldwide by over 20,000 people in more than 40 countries. In early 2008, the newspaper received investment from some Australians and became a daily publication on August 8, 2008.

The Post's news and analysis provide regular and thorough coverage of current issues in a rapidly changing Cambodia. Significant events covered range from the UN-sponsored Paris Peace Accords[clarification needed] and subsequent elections, to the promulgation of a new constitution enabling the establishment of a constitutional monarchy.
