Collective Newsroom launches as an independent news company

SURAT: Collective Newsroom has launched as an independent Indian-owned media company with a vision to be the home to India’s most credible, creative and courageous journalism.

Publishing from India, Collective Newsroom will create programmes and content for our first client, the BBC, and is available to make content for other news providers across India and around the globe. We exist to serve Indian audiences with innovative and impactful journalism and to cover stories for a global audience. Collective Newsroom is ambitious in scale and editorial output and will deliver premium quality content for our customers across India. 

Rupa Jha, CEO, Collective Newsroom, says: “I’m thrilled that Collective Newsroom has officially launched with a clear, ambitious mission to create the most credible, creative and courageous journalism, and with a wealth of experience and talent in our incredible teams.

“Audiences will quickly come to know Collective Newsroom as an independent news organisation that leads with the facts, works in the public interest and hears from diverse voices and perspectives.” 

Rupa Jha is joined by fellow directors Mukesh Sharma, Sanjoy Majumder and Sara Hasan, who all bring extensive editorial and programming-making experience. 

The arrangement with Collective Newsroom’s first client, the BBC, includes the contract to produce content for BBC News Hindi, the BBC’s language service with the largest audience. In 2023, across all platforms, the service’s weekly reach figure grew 27% year-on-year. 

Across our remit we will create and publish journalism for BBC News in six Indian languages: Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu, as well as in English for the BBC News India YouTube channel, and produce other English content.
