1982

This year marked the launch of 'News Today', an English evening newspaper, part of the Group company's publications. Started by the doyen of Indian journalism T R Ramaswami (TRR), News Today carries forward boldly the rich and varied legacy that he left behind. A member of the Indian Newspaper Society (INS) and published from Chennai, News Today provides news, analysis, features, special columns in an alluring kaleidoscope of neatly-laid out pages. 

News Today also brings out special supplements on diverse subjects like banking, education, housing from time to time to broad base its offering to its substantial number of readers. The abiding philosophy is simple: If you take your readers and advertisers seriously, they will take you seriously, too. It is with this idea in mind, News Today has been widening its distribution network and improving its channels of news dissemination.

Subscribed to by major airlines (Indian Airlines, Air India and Paramount Airlines for their in-flight reading for planes emanating out of Chennai) and top star hotels, it enjoys a huge base of not only dedicated readers but also discerning ones.

The web edition of the paper, that gets updated daily at around the same time the regular paper hits the stands, has a readership and reach all over the world. So, it is actually not just about style and substance. It is also about sweep and spread.
