Catch is a new multi-media digital platform about the ideas and events shaping our world.
It aims to provide news-on-the-run for an impatient new generation.
But it will also offer context and insight for the deeper consumer of news.
It also has some innovative new forms – from short, bulleted explainers or 3-minute videos to flip-cards called ‘X-packs’, and deep-dive devices called ‘Decks’.
In the short week since it was launched, Catch has had definitive pieces on issues as varied as the Narendra Modi government, the militancy in Manipur-Myanmar-Kashmir, the railways revamp, the new SEBI stock exchange, to the Ganga, Delhi waste crisis, cricket, sexuality, arranged marriages, migratory birds, superstar biscuits and how algorithms are replacing journalists.
Part of the Rajasthan Patrika group, and led by senior journalist Shoma Chaudhury as editor-in-chief, Catch quite simply hopes to curate a space -- a voice -- you will grow to like and trust.
Its senior team includes journalists Bharat Bhushan, Editor.
Payal Puri and Kunal Mazumdar. Vinny Ganju will be the Chief Operating Officer Catch News and will be responsible for operations of Catch News including business
