Remember the days when people used to pass information through letters from one place to another? Earlier, sending a piece of information was a task of struggle. Then after sometime, newspapers and magazines were introduced which carried all the news of a week. So, basically everyone had to wait for a week to get all the news. The invention of internet, social medias and digital platforms are a real boon to the mankind. Through the invention of these, news from Chennai reaches to Tenkasi within a fraction of seconds.
Social platforms are a bliss for the media groups as they are able to gather more crowd than that of the crowd they used to gather through newspaper. But with more crowd, spreads more negativity and false news. It became very much essential to bring out the real and fact-based news.
This is why Kathir News was introduced.
Founded in the year 2018, Kathir News is a digital news platform which focus on bringing out the truth with analytical statements rather than sentimental statements. It is a Tamil Nadu based portal which also provides information across the country. Mr Suryah SG is the founder and Mr Pradeep Gunasekaran is the co-founder.
At starting this portal used to grasp a limited people’s attention. It was very difficult to grab everyone’s attention as the other news platforms had their roots deep in the ground already.
With many ups and downs, criticism and appreciation, the portal grew and now it hits more than 3-4 million people a month.it has more than several thousand followers on different social medias like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, DailyHunt, Jio news and many more.
“Catching audience’s attention was the real task. Without readers and viewers, we couldn’t ever grow. Initially we ran out of ideas and techniques on how to grab people’s attention. But as we started exposing all the other news portals and political statements, everyone was really impressed and starting appreciating our work” says the founder, Mr Suryah.
They won millions of hearts as they climbed up every step.
Kathir News main motive is to provide objective and analytical data of all the current happenings around. Other news portals are so much indulged in providing doom and gloom information. So, this portal focused on talking about all the commendable initiatives taken by the state and local government.
Apart from this, Kathir News also busted out the truth behind many political matter or statement. Not once or twice, but many a times this portal has brought the truth in the doorsteps of general people with real facts and checks. This was appreciated worldwide as none of the other news portals ever dared to do this.
Alongside they also focus on cinema industry, spirituality, lifestyle and a lot more quality content that a current affairs maniac looks for. They post enormous articles, debates, podcast and interviews with all the required details.
When Mr Suryah was asked “How do you deal with criticism” he simply said “getting criticized is a part of journey. It is a way through which everyone judges our work. We considered all the reviews and develop accordingly. I believe that critics is the reason behind our growth.”
Even after coming late to the party Kathir News proved to be the show stopper. With increase in number of audience, they have launched a Digital Magazine in the month of February. Also, they are going to launch their app which would be very much convenient for the people to check out the topics of their interest. Along with this they are planning to organize talk shows under “Kuralarangam”. Alongside they have many plans which would increase their scope of expansion in the news world.
