The Nation Group marked its 48th birthday on Monday by re-launching its website to further strengthen its presence in digital media.
The group kicked off its “Move Forward Total Media Platform” campaign in an event attended by business partners and friends.
The Nation, Thailand’s second English-language newspaper, began printing in 1971 and since then, the group has launched two sister Thai-language dailies, Krungthep Thurakij and Khom Chad Luek, and later the Nation TV channel.
This year the group added a third Thai-language newspaper to its portfolio, Thansettakij, which publishes every three days, and Spring News online.
On Monday, it also launched Bottom Line, a news magazine on Facebook (www.facebook.com/bottomlineth), which will offer in-depth stories of special interest. This is in addition to the existing bangkokbiznews.com and I-Newspaper application run by Krungthep Thurakij. The app is available for both Android and iOS phones.
Though The Nation ended its print run on June 28, it will continue providing readers with the latest in local and international news coverage in English language via www.nationthailand.com. The Nation remains committed to professional and ethical journalism.
