In news, SouthLive will pursue original, responsible journalism that is deeply reported, thoroughly researched and beautifully told.”

NK Bhoopesh said, “We wish to call us a News Interactive and we will provide enough space for the content generated by our readers/ viewers equipped with new technologies currently transforming the global media.
