Critically acclaimed for the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and ethical journalism, Mymensingh Division 24 is a first-of-its-kind venture, being the first Internet-only newsgathering operation based on Mymensingh Division in Bangladesh and one of the famous in the country.
The 24/7 news publisher draws on the resources of over 50 journalists and photographers around Mymensingh Division and country beyond. For One and half year now, it has brought accurate news and unique insights to a widely dispersed audience.
It had begun primarily as a news agency with a few clients in the print and broadcast industry. The numbers kept changing for the provider of essential news, information, analysis and comment – with thirty of thousands of unique visitors turning to the site.
The story for the division’s ‘first Internet newspaper’ dates back to last-2015 when a friendly takeover led to boardroom changes at Shikhori Media Group Ltd, the owning company.
Back to the drawing board, the takeover turned out to be the perfect opportunity to rebrand what had started out as Mymensingh Division 24 – a news agency service delivered online, a business which had become difficult to sustain for the original founders.
In January 2016, M K Farazi, journalist & organizer, took over as Managing Director of the company, and the news outfit re-emerged as Mymensingh Division 24, effectively becoming division’s first dotcom company.
Months later, its content was opened to public for free, earning it the now-famous label ‘Mymensingh Division’s first online newspaper’.
Mymensingh Division 24, as a free-to-access 24/7 news source, turns two on February 01, 2017.
M K Farazi, as the Publisher (on behalf of the owning company) and Saiful Alam Tuhin, as the acting Editor, put together a new team of experienced, talented, and tech-savvy professionals from across the journalistic spectrum. Two years on, the team continues to innovate, lead and set new standards for the digital generation.
