Most popular online news portal risingbd.com has stepped into the seventh year of its establishment. This online news portal started its journey on April 26, 2013 with an aim to publish positive news. Heartiest greetings to all of our readers and well-wishers on this auspicious moment.
In the seventies, online media started its journey across the world. As compared to the printed press, online media is very young. The online media in Bangladesh started at the very beginning of zero decade which means the history of online media in Bangladesh is of only fifteen years. According to official estimates, there are now many online newspapers in the country. The online media have become very popular within a very short time because of having a power to publish news story immediately. But most of online portals are being involved in evil competition to publish news first of all. In many cases, many online news portals are seen to publish news reports without checking the authenticity of the information.
Walton, the country`s leading electronics, electrical and automobile products manufacturing company, took an initiative to establish the online portal in 2013 with an aim to publish positive and standard news. Subsequently, risingbd.com was established on April 26 in that year. The online portal risingbd.com has been serving smoothly since its establishment competing with existing online portals in this era of easy access to information.
The portal has already picked huge praises from all classes of people because of its pioneering role in serving positive news. The portal covers national, international, politics, business, sports, entertainment, opinion, life style, law and crime news and many more categories which have helped it to attract readers.
The term ‘rising’ means flourishing, ascending, growing. The reason for picking this word among hundreds of words is that we want to exceed all in the throng of existing online media with keeping up the standard and creativity in publishing news. We have emerged as the rising and like to continue the journey. Publisher, editor, assistant editor, reporters and all concerned people of the house have worked relentlessly for its successful journey. Readers and advertisers have played a key role in this regard. Last of all, we like to pay best wishes and love to all who had been with risingbd for last six years.
