Alan Gray is the Editor-in-Chief of NewsBlaze, and writes and edits stories at NewsBlaze USA, NewsBlaze India and NewsBlaze Australia.

With so many journalists in India and the region, and following numerous requests, we have decided to open up our new independent news site, NewsBlaze India. For the past few weeks, we have been talking with a small core group of contributors and selecting the platform and categories. We are working on a logo, and trying various layouts.

We have mainly been discussing what readers want, how to involve readers, news angles, editors, training for journalists.

NewsBlaze India Launch Date

The plan is to launch NewsBlaze India in the first two weeks of August, 2015.

Focus

Initially, the news and other content will focus on India, expanding to other countries in the region over time.

Categories

The main categories will be India (obviously), NorthEast, Business, Politics, Photo Stories and Video. Entertainment, Health and Fun will be next.
