Deccan Post, a GenNext English news weekly, to hit newsstands in Hyderabad on February 15

Deccan Post, an English language compact from Ahobila Media Creations Pvt Ltd, is slated for launch in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad on February 15, 2008. The weekly claims to be one-of-its-kind, focusing exclusively on the most vibrant group in the world – the GenNext.

V Raghavender Reddy, CEO, Ahobila Media Creations, said, “The new weekly will be formally launched on February 15, heralding a new media revolution in Hyderabad. Deccan Post would provide a comprehensive and innovative package of news and features that reflects the changing tastes and growing aspirations of Hyderabadis.”

It would reflect the typical ‘Deccan’ culture, tradition and cuisine, and of course, the new generation’s mindset. “Essentially a Hyderabadi weekly, Deccan Post is an out and out local, unlike those who choke the readers with imported stuff,” Reddy further said.

Deccan Post would have 36 all colour pages and would reach readers every Friday morning. The weekly would also have an Internet edition simultaneously, which would be a 24x7 interactive web portal providing the latest news, views and reviews to the readers round the clock.

Deccan Post aims to cater to the needs of all sections of the society – from the common man to professionals, from a college student to a retired official, and from old city to HITEC City.

Apart from the twin cities, Deccan Post would be in circulation all over Andhra Pradesh as well as also in metros like Delhi.
