The official establishment of the Roodepoort Record in 1978 was, in effect, the start of what ultimately became the West Rand branch of Caxton Community Newspapers.

The Roodepoort Record had the distinction of being the first generic Caxton newspaper under new proprietors Messrs Terry Moolman and Noel Coburn to appoint a full time editor (Cliff Buchler) resident in the area. It operated with a staff of two (the editor and space salesperson, Marilyn Norton) from the Afmed offices in Albertskroon (to the north west of Johannesburg) and was published twice monthly.

The Record’s phenomenal growth coincided with that of the three municipalities (Maraisburg, Florida an Roodepoort) that represented the Roodepoort area. So much so that Roodepoort was declared a city and the Record became a weekly newspaper (after one year). A classified section was established as soon as this happened.
