Critically acclaimed for the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and ethical journalism, Banglarbarta24 is a first-of-its-kind venture, being the Internet-only newsgathering operation in Bangladesh and one of the first in the world.
The 24/7 news publisher draws on the resources of over 300 journalists and photographers around Bangladesh and beyond.It has brought accurate news and unique insights to a widely dispersed audience.
It had begun primarily as a news agency with a few clients in the print and broadcast industry. The bilingual news service quickly grew to be the world’s window on Bangladesh. The numbers kept changing for the provider of essential news, information, analysis, and comment – with tens of millions of unique visitors turning to the site.
Back to the drawing board, the takeover turned out to be the perfect opportunity to rebrand what had started out as Banglarbarta24– a news agency service delivered online, a business which had become difficult to sustain for the original founders.
Months later, its content was opened to the public for free, earning it the now-famous label ‘Bangladesh’s largest online newspaper’.
Banglarbarta24.com, as a free-to-access 24/7 news source, turns 10 on October 22, 2018.
The only other member of the company’s Board of Directors is Sakibul Islam Hasem, who chairs.
Manik Al Hasan and Md Humayun Kabir as Editor-in-Chief put together a new team of experienced, talented, and tech-savvy professionals from across the journalistic spectrum. The team continues to innovate, lead and set new standards for the digital generation.
