ABP News, formerly known as Star News, was rebranded after the ABP Group acquired it in 2013. ABP Live, an English news website, is owned by the ABP network in addition to ABP News. ABP News is also available on YouTube under the name ABP News.
In February 1998, ABP News was renamed Star News. The station was first run by Star India, with production handled by NDTV. Star India was a bilingual channel that carried the news in Hindi and English until 2003.
After the arrangement with NDTV terminated in 2003, Star News began broadcasting as a full-fledged channel. According to the terms of the deal between ABP Group and Star Group, Star India began broadcasting news only in Hindi from that point forward.
The Star-News channel was administered by Media Content and Communications Services Pvt. Ltd. (MCCS), which was founded as part of a joint venture between the Star Group and the Ananda Bazar Patrika (ABP) group. The Star Group and the ABP Group each owned a 26% and 74% stake in the joint venture, respectively.
Following that, in 2016, the ABP Group purchased Star Group’s stake in MCCS in order to focus their business on entertainment. As a result of the split, Star News was renamed ABP News. Following the new development, the MCCS company’s other channels were likewise rebranded. Star Ananda became ABP Ananda, a Bengali news station, and Star Majha became ABP Majha, a Marathi news channel, as a result. From 2012 till the present, ABP News’ motto has been ‘Aapko Rakhe Aage.’
