About Us

Steady and sincere: In a world that is forever in a flux, something needs to be stable, serious and sincere to offer a sense of balance and correct perspective. And that is what News Today – the newspaper – has been doing over the last 35 years. Started in 1982 by the doyen of Indian journalism T R Ramaswami (TRR), News Today carries forward boldly the rich and varied legacy that he left behind.

The newly re-launched Internet edition, with its accent on simplicity and easy navigation, reflects the ideals of the publication that has laced itself into Chennai ethos over the last two decades. It is reader-friendly format and can be viewed on any media. It provides instant updations of the happenings in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India and the world at large.

Published from Chennai, News Today provides news, analysis, features, special columns in an alluring kaleidoscope. However, the accent is decidedly Chennai, a city that is both a traditional bulwark as well as a technological pivot. Covering this delightful diversity, News Today offers fare whose flavour is certainly different from the ones available in the market.

Modernity is what News Today seeks, but yet does not want to kick out the traditions of the land.

News Today’s evolving USP is taking a firm stand on issues even while covering them impartially and honestly. Nothing reflects this abiding philosophy than Editor T R Jawahar’s Countdown and Point Blank columns, which stand aside in resplendent relief from the cliches of journalistic clutter.

News Today’s core ideology is simple: If you take your readers seriously, they will take you seriously, too. Newstodaynet.com carries this legacy into the tech-driven era of today.
