Chennai-based 24X7 Tamil news channel 'Cauvery News' has completed all statuary formalities and is set to launch shortly.

Promoted by Cauvery Power Trading Chennai Pvt Limited, 'Cauvery News' is committed to the highest standards of journalism. With a senior editorial team drawn from top national and Tamil news channels, the channel will seek a leadership position for itself through its distinct editorial approach.

An approach cantered around its guiding principle of 'Matrathai Noki'.

From the very start 'Cauvery News' has been known to report on issues without fear or favour. Neutrality and balance are corner stones of our reportage.

Cauvery News has empowered its journalists with the state of the art international broadcast, newsroom automation, graphics and news gathering systems.

The 'Cauvery News' headquarters at Ekatuthangal has world class studios, newsroom and presentation areas designed by one of the world's most renowned broadcast architect.

We have constantly encouraged our editorial team to work to the highest standards and also create bulletins and programmes that are unique in both content and presentation."
