The Herald was a monthly magazine of politics and current affairs published by the Dawn Media Group from 1970 to 2019 in Karachi, Pakistan.[3][4] The Herald has been responsible for producing many large and breaking stories since it started.

It was renamed from the Illustrated Weekly of Pakistan in 1970, which was published from 1948–1969.[5][6][1]

It was Pakistan's most widely read monthly magazine, providing in-depth analyses, investigative reporting and an extensive coverage of current affairs. The magazine enjoyed a wide circulation abroad, particularly among academics and Pakistani expatriate communities in the Middle East, United Kingdom and North America.

It stopped publication after its last issue in July 2019.[3]
