The daily is planning to expand its circulation to Bijapur and Mysore. Following which editions from Gangavati, Chitiradurga, Shimoga and Gulbarga will be published in two months’ time.
 

Commenting on the marketing initiatives for the daily, Anand Sankeshwar, Managing Director, VRL Media said, “We will be heavily promoting the newspaper through television and OOH campaigns. We have launched Vijayavani in three prime markets in Karnataka and will soon publish it across the state in a phased manner.
