Karnataka’s only Kannada daily that offers all pages in colour – Vijayavani – has flagged off its 10th printing centre in the state in Belgaum. Published by VRL Media from the house of VRL Logistics, Vijayavani had recently created media frenzy by being the only Kannada newspaper to launch nine editions in just 90 days.
Belgaum is the largest district of Karnataka with 11 talukas, comprising 18 Assembly and three Parliamentary constituencies (including Canara) and a population of more than 45 lakh. It will be only the second Kannada daily to cater exclusively to the political and commercial beehive.
“We are happy to announce that we have launched our 10th printing centre Belgaum from February 11, 2013,” said Anand Sankeshwar, MD of VRL Media. “I am glad that we can deliver more news with the latest developments on the issues going on in and around Belgaum to our readers”.
Highly influential in the political sphere – as established by the recent Suvarna Soudha inauguration, Belgaum is also a nucleus for education and an emerging centre for multinational companies. By setting the wheels into motion in the agricultural and industrial hub, Sankeshwar believes that it is a harbinger of Vijayavani’s circulation in the neighbouring states of Goa and Maharashtra.
