VRL Media launches Kannada news channel, Dighvijay

Following the success of Vijayavani as a premier newspaper in Kannada in Karnataka under the guidance of Dr. Vijay Sankeshwar and spearheaded by Anand Sankeshwar, VRL Media launched DIGHVIJAY, a 24x7 Kannada News channel on April 5, on the occasion of Ramanavami. Dr. Channasiddharama Panditaaradhya Shivacharya Bhagavaddararu, Karnataka State BJP President and Former CM of Karnataka, BS Yadyurappa launched the channel in the presence of Former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, Former Minister MV Rajashekaran, film star Ramesh Arvind, Music Director Ricky Kej and other dignitaries in Bengaluru.

Vijayavani, launched on the same day of Ramanavami 5 years ago has seen stupendous success at being No.1 newspaper primarily due to wide array of thought provoking articles on national issues, political thoughts with near accurate content on the ongoing issues in the state, country and globally. The channel under the able guidance of Managing Director, Anand Sankeshwar, is equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure. 

“I always wanted to see a Kannadiga launching a Kannada news channel. Now with Dighvijay, my desire is realised. We in the past have heard families getting destroyed due to watching television. But we want to prove them wrong through our TV channel,” said Dr. Vijay Sankeshwar. Thanking the readers in accepting Vijayavani as their newspaper, he sought support of people to show the same faith and trust in the TV channel.

“(The channel has) No commercialisation and it’s purely commited towards society. I am extremely happy with Dr. Vijay Sankeshwar and his work.  If you find functionality in your work, you will succeed,” said Jagadguru Dr. Channasiddharama Panditaaradhya.

Speaking at the function, Former CM, Yadyurappa said Dr. Vijay Sankeshwar has been a model for thousands of young Indians. The BJP President showed confidence about the TV channel and said it will provide the much needed direction to the audience in search of truth.

In his address to the gathering at the inauguration, Managing Director, Anand Sankeshwar said they shall leave no stone unturned in providing what the audience wants through true journalism.

The highlight of the event was the creation of Ganesha through brush by internationally renowned Speed Artist, Vilas Nayak.
