Markand Adhikari, promoter of Broadcast Initiatives Ltd, is launching a magazine that will focus on matters related to government and governance. The magazine is expected to launch in late October. B. Venkat Rao, former group editor at Zee News, has been hired as editor.
“The magazine will be targetted at stakeholders in the process of governance–think tanks, bureaucrats, politicians, activists, etc. We want to bring in more journalism into public policy,” Rao said.
Details such as title, pricing, etc., are still being firmed up, Rao said.
Broadcast Initiatives runs the news channel Live India, which found itself in the middle of a fake sting controversy in 2007.
