OUR STORY

आज न्यूज क्या है? आज न्यूज देखा क्या? Aaj NEWJ Dekha Kya? - A daily conversation in most of the Indian households as family members would discuss the latest news over a cup of Chai.

In 2018, NEWJ (New Emerging World of Journalism Limited) was born to foster this sentiment which every Indian family shares across generations, from the ones who watched Doordarshan to the smartphone obsessed millennials.

The advent of Jio has led to an evolution in the news industry owing to affordability of data. This evolution has particularly impacted those beyond the metropolitan cities. The definition of news has broadened beyond breaking news and has become personalized at the same time, be it trending news, sports, viral news, business news or opinion news.

Through high-impact visual storytelling for the masses who are increasingly spending time on social media, NEWJ aims to fulfill the demand of meaningful content particularly in the hinterlands.

With the goal of showcasing and amplifying "Stories of India, for India and by India", NEWJ has carved a unique niche in the online news and digital media space through its offerings in 12 languages. As a new-age media house and a media production company, NEWJ is committed towards building a 'Digital Bharat' through impactful and India-centric storytelling.
