Bangladesh has two main news agencies: one that is government-owned and mostly serves the party, and the other that is privately owned and takes a neutral stance. The state news agency Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS), which was founded in 1972, becomes a megaphone for the ruling parties.
BSS’s corporate news source, which includes international exchange and market rates, is subscribed to by banks and business organizations.
It is affiliated with the Ministry of Information and is led by a chief operating officer writer, with an executive board overseeing the agency’s overall vision and operation.
Rainbow Productions Ltd owns Focus Bangla (previously known as NE Bangla), a Bangla-speaking 24-hour news program that debuted in 2004. The upcoming launch of Focus Bangla will herald a new era of unparalleled and required Bengali-language content developed and delivered from Agartala and Kolkata.
Focus Bangla is offering neutral and trustworthy news in live time to Bangla speakers. In addition to West Bengal news, the station broadcasts regional and global events, ensuring viewers are updated in a globally linked world.
