With the vision of 'Educate, Empower Enlighten, and Enable positive changes', newskarnataka.com, was started in May 2012 in Kannada. However, the popular response to the website and the quest for diversity prompted the team to start an English news portal in March 17, 2013, thus bringing into existence two exclusive portals -newskarnataka.com, catering to English readers and newskannada.com, dedicated to Kannada reader base.
Since then there has been no looking back. Today, from a humble beginning, we contribute in a small but powerful way towards promoting positive and ethical journalism.Passion rules!
Unlike many media houses, which are profit and digits-driven, we at newskarnataka.com and its sibling newskannada.com, proudly proclaim that the news portals were born out of passion and not out of commercial interest.
They are undoubtedly the first of its kind crowd funded media undertakings, where it’s not the ‘owner’s’ interest that is paramount, but that of its readers, writers, contributors, employees and all who connect with it.It has spawned and supports our trademark‘truth endures’journalism where our journalists say what they want to say, honestly and without fear or favor.
