Azure Media Publications Pvt. Ltd, the publishing arm of Rajeev Chandrasekhar-promoted Jupiter Entertainment Ventures, has recently launched a city-based magazine ‘The Bengaluru Pages’ in Bangalore.
The ‘Bengaluru Pages’ aims to keep its finger on the pulse of the city with a comprehensive listings section. Reviews, previews and sneak peeks into the world of food, night life, music, theatre, dance, shopping, sports, movies, books, art, talks and workshops would keep one in sync with the heartbeat of Bangalore, stated an official communiqué.
The first issue of the magazine with the cover story on migrants hit the newsstands on October 1. The fortnightly magazine, priced at Rs 30, will hit the newsstands on the 1st and 16th of every month.
Asha Rai, Editor of ‘The Bengaluru Pages’, said, “Bangalore is the country’s third largest metro. Its size, importance and diversity deserve a special platform. With ‘The Bengaluru Pages’ we intend to provide just that. It is the first magazine to be launched by Azure Media. We intend to bring to market many more such offerings targetted at specific communities.”
Azure Media Publications is the publishing arm of Jupiter Entertainment Ventures (JEV), which is part of Jupiter Capital founded by Rajeev Chandrasekhar. JEV is building and growing three brands in the entertainment space: Radio Indigo, Asianet and now, The Bengaluru Pages.
Azure has focussed interests in print publishing, digital media and books. Subsequent to the launch of The Bengaluru Pages, Azure will be launching many more niche and up-market products specifically targetting the upper-middle class in India, stated the communiqué.
