Weekly newspaper Chauthi Duniya is all set to launch an Urdu edition on May 23, 2010. MS Waseem Rashid will be the Editor of the Urdu edition. The Group is in the process of recruiting staff for the new venture and a special experienced editorial team is being put in place before the launch.
Speaking to exchange4media, Santosh Bhartiya, Editor, Chauthi Dunia, said, “Through this new Urdu newspaper, we will be focusing on the whole society instead of any particular group. The Urdu Internet edition of Chauthi Duniya is working very well and it gave us the confidence to launch an Urdu newspaper also. At present, we are working towards making a experienced editorial team.”
It may be recalled that Hindi weekly broadsheet Chauthi Duniya was revived after a gap of 17 years more than a year back. The Sunday paper that had closed down in 1992 after a six-year run, made comeback in its new avatar on March 29, 2009.
