The South China Morning Post (also known as SCMP or The Post), with its Sunday edition, the Sunday Morning Post, is a Hong Kong English-language newspaper founded in 1903.

It is Hong Kong’s newspaper of record, owned by Alibaba Group. The journal was founded by Australian-born anti-Qing dynasty revolutionary Tse Tsan-Tai and British journalist Alfred Cunningham (formerly with China Mail, Hong Kong Daily Press and New York Sun), with the first edition of the paper published on 6 November 1903.

The journal’s circulation has been relatively stable for years—the average daily circulation stood at 100,000 in 2016.

It was owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation until it was acquired by Malaysian real estate tycoon Robert Kuok in 1993. On 5 April 2016, Alibaba Group acquired the media properties of the SCMP Group, including the South China Morning Post.
