Mumbai: One of India’s largest news networks iTV Network on Thursday launched newskannada.com in Bengaluru in the presence of Karnataka chief minister Shri Basavaraj Bommai.

After clicking open the web portal, the CM wished all the ITV subscribers and stated, "It is heartwarming to see one of the most reliable media houses in the country starting a news portal in Kannada. I am sure NewsX Kannada will give its readers a wide variety of news across different genres. These days people see and hear news more on mobile phones. The future is digital and NewsX has already embarked on this journey. I wish NewsX and its subscribers all the best."

The web portal will cater to Kannada news readers across the world with the latest updates and breaking news across segments like politics, crime, cities, cinema, sports, lifestyle, health, national and international news.

Speaking on the momentous occasion of launching the website, iTV Network founder Kartikeya Sharma said, “The idea of starting a Kannada news portal stems from the fact that there is a dearth of reliable news portals. The fact that we have one of the largest news networks with reporters in the nook and cranny of the country prompted us to explore diversified platforms to cater to the news. While we have been established as one of the leading TV news outlets, the Kannada news portal is our latest venture on the digital platform. It’s just the beginning of a series of such initiatives we have planned across South India to cater to news markets in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Kerala."
