Network18 has unveiled a new and common identity for all group news channels, which will be seen across the news stable, and a pledge to focus on and highlight more Indian languages.
Commenting on the launch, Network18 chairman Adil Zainulbhai said, “As regional markets deepen and the hunger for vernacular news continues to rise inexorably, we have carried our strengths into multiple linguistic geographies through new regional channels and digital properties. Our portfolio of national channels across news genres provides us a platform that places us at a substantial advantage versus competitors.” In short: the reach is the strength.
The unveiling was done at the group-organised event themed 'News18 Rising India Summit’ in the presence of national and international luminaries from the fields of governance, arts, business and academia. The occasion was graced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who delivered a keynote address outlining his government’s vision for India.
Dignitaries present included ministers Piyush Goyal, Nitin Gadkari and Suresh Prabhu; CMs Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Jai Ram Thakur, Manohar Lal Khattar; and other public figures like politicians Farukh Abdullah, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Anurag Thakur and personalities such as Nobel laureate economist Paul Krugman, Gautam Adani of Adani Group, Naveen Jindal of Jindal Steel, State Bank of India CMD Rajnish Kumar, Anil Agarwal of Vedanta, Shikha Sharma of Axis Bank, filmstar Kangana Ranaut and adman-cum-CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi.
