Add details about Nayapatrika Daily.
The Kantipur daily is the first private-run broadsheet daily in Nepal. Multiparty democracy had just been restored in the country when the paper rolled out in February 1993. Since then, the paper has striven to keep the public updated on current affairs, stir discussion and protect democratic values, including human rights and the rule of law. It is the go-to source for credible news, features and critical analysis. With a daily readership of 2.88 million Nepalis, Kantipur is the largest and the most influential daily in the country.
Since April 1993, the paper has been publishing a Saturday special called ‘Koseli’, in which readers can find feature articles, short stories, poetry and book reviews. Another weekend adjunct, ‘Kopila’ (first out in March 2001) focuses on stories about children for children. It tries to enhance children’s reading ability and creativity, and on increasing their access to information. The latest special feature to be incorporated is ‘Hello Shukrabar’ (since 2008), which tries to satiate the hunger for information of the young demographic.
Kantipur is concurrently published from Kathmandu, Biratnagar, Bharatpur and Nepalgunj. Each of these regional offices produces their own regional editions. Outside the country, Kantipur publishes a weekly edition from Qatar, entitled ‘Kantipur Gulf Weekly’, (since January 2007). The weekly attempts to keep the growing Nepali diaspora in the Gulf countries informed about the latest developments in Nepal.
Kantipur has more than 100 reporters in all corners of the country. In India, the paper has a Delhi bureau, which reports on Nepal-India relations and on the issues of Nepalis in India. It also has dedicated reporters in Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Sidney, Doha, Brussels, London and New York.
Kantipur has always fought to safeguard people’s right to right information. Its reportage have held the powerful accountable–whether it be during unlawful dissolutions of parliament or during autocratic times. Attempts to muzzle the paper, either through court suits and summons or through a blockade, have been made, but the paper has remained firm in its belief in freedom of expression and information. It vows to continue to perform the role of the fourth estate, with more substantial and investigative stories in the future.
The Kathmandu Post, the country’s leading English-language daily, the Nepali-language and Nepal’s biggest-selling Kantipur daily were both launched in February 1993.The Post is the first private-run English-language broadsheet in the country and is credited with introducing the concept of news enterprise and breaking news in the nation. The Post is the second-most widely read paper in Nepal after the Kantipur daily.
The paper is considered one of the most reliable publications for news, opinion and original content. The newspaper’s Op-Ed section is widely followed and features columns by some of Nepal’s eminent intellectuals. The section also carries frequent write-ups from international scholars, leaders of non-governmental organisations, diplomats, and experts from various sectors.
It also carries content from leading foreign newspapers and news syndicates, such as the New York Times, the Guardian and Project Syndicate.
The newspaper is a member of Asia News Network (ANN), a coalition of leading English-language newspapers in the Asia Pacific region–Singapore’s The Straits Times, Malaysia’s Star, China Daily, Philippine Enquirer, Thailand’s The Nation, Jakarta Post, Bangladesh’s The Daily Star, among others, are ANN members. The Post runs a weekly ANN page and also features articles from ANN newspapers in its various daily sections.
Since its inception, the Post has experimented with ways to make diverse content available to its readers. Within a week of its launch, the Post produced a Friday supplement called ‘The Weekend Post’. Since July 2009, the paper has been producing a weekend supplement–‘On Saturday’–focusing on long-form journalism, satire and creative non-fiction articles. In August 2010, the Post rolled out a daily four-page pullout called ‘Money’, which is dedicated exclusively to business news. Apart from its regular pages and weekly supplements, the paper publishes yearly special issues, such as on the Gregorian New Year’s eve and on its birth anniversary in February.
A growing number of online team provides timely updates on news and events. Stories and articles published on the print version of the Post can also be read online. The paper is currently working to integrate its print and online teams.
With an estimated daily readership of 410,000, the Post has done to English-reading abilities of Nepalis what Kantipur has done to their Nepali. The Post has developed a new language to tell Nepal’s stories in English to both local and international audience.
The Post is published simultaneously from Kathmandu, Biratnagar, Bharatpur and Nepalgunj.
