“We are passionate about the news because it is connective tissue for humanity. Those who read better know better and do better. It is our mission to spark global conversations about issues that matter And, no global conversation is complete without India.
We live in an age where connectivity risks connection. We’d like to change that. Too much information can overwhelm and result in what’s important going unseen. The News Republic team believes that Intelligently informed citizens become powerfully empowered citizens – this is what galvanizes us.”
India engages vibrantly with both news and mobile. It is the biggest newspaper market in the world (>70K newspapers). India’s unique visitors to online news and information sites grew 45%, from 31 million in 2011 to 45 million in 2014 (comScore data) and mobile Internet users will number over 200 million by June. Mobile, with 24/7 access to content, will transform the media landscape.
In India, company operations will be spearheaded by Radhika Shukla, India Country Director. Shukla will widen and deepen the company’s content and OEM partnerships to enrich user experience for Indian readers and to help bring Indian media perspectives to News Republic’s global audience. News Republic publishes 13 editions in 6 languages.
