TV9 Founded:2004

The Associated Broadcasting Company Pvt Ltd (ABCL) is one of the fastest growing media companies in India today. We started with a 24-hour news channel (TV9 AP) in Andhra Pradesh in 2004, and quickly became a ratings leader there with our unique brand of bold and fearless journalism.
In just four years ABCL has added seven more channels to its bouquet, each a major player in its metier:
TV9 Karnataka– the first news channel in Kannada, and a runaway TRP topper
–TV9 Gujarat – the only Gujarati news channel, and a resounding success
–Indiavision– fierce competitor in the Malayalam news space
–Kolkata TV – path-breaking Bengali news channel
–TV1: niche channel in telugu devoted to Entertainment and News.
–News9 (English) – a english news channel for Bangalore city
–TV9 Maharastra (Marathi) – our stake in the financial capital
–TV9 New Delhi (Hindi)
–TV9 Chennai (Tamil)
That will make ABCL a truly pan-Indian broadcaster located in every major metropolis in the country, and articulating the concerns of India’s millions in the language most accessible to them.
