Dawn News is Pakistan's first 24-hour English news channel. Based in Karachi, the station is a subsidiary of Pakistan Herald Publications Limited (PHPL), Pakistan's largest English-language media group. The test transmission of the station occurred in May 25 2007, and the channel went live on July 23, 2007.
Dawn News' Test Transmission was launched by former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf. The complete launch of the channel coincided with the result of the Supreme Court case which cleared the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, who had been suspended by General Musharraf. The channel was initially housed in Haroon House, the head-office of PHPL, but later moved to its current premises in West Wharf, Karachi.
The channel has an online stream available on its web site for foreign viewing.
Rooted firmly in a tradition of integrity, reliability and trust, the Dawn Media Network has launched DawnNews, Pakistan’s leading news and current affairs television channel.
Furthering a legacy that was begun by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah with the founding of the Dawn newspaper in 1947, DawnNews vows to provide its viewers with a medium that is responsible, credible and balanced.
We report all sides of the story, letting the light through, every second, every minute, every hour, 24x7.
We empower you to understand the difference.
