Sharing his views on the initiative, Milind Khandekar, managing editor, Tak, comments, “Our journey in Gujarat market has been impeccable. We entered through varied social media platforms and within a year we are ready to launch our own digital-destination. The website will feature exclusively tailored content especially for Gujarati-speaking digital audience. It will act as a comprehensive platform with all content categorised in systematic formats like text-news articles, web-stories, and videos.
Adding to the reasons on launching the website, Vivek Gaur, CEO, Tak, says, “After covering Maharashtra and UP, Gujarat will be the third regional-market with our native platform. Gujarat Tak as a channel had crossed 100 million views in FY21-22 on social media. The launch of the website further establishes Trust, Authenticity & Knowledge with the end-consumer.”
