Speaking on the launch, Lakshmi Narasimhan, CEO, Web18, said
“The Network18 Group is committed to news and internet. And FirstPost.com is a
happy confluence of both. This product uses the unique strengths of the medium
and will enrich news consumption across platforms.”

R Jagannathan, editor, Web18, said: “India is
ready for high-quality web journalism. The problem with news today is that
there is too much of it. What we need is to make sense of it all. That’s what
FirstPost will seek to do — distil what is relevant and offer it in a
consumable template. In other media, news and views are often a one-way
broadcast to the reader or viewer. In the digital world, FirstPost will seek to
co-create news in partnership with the reader, viewer and listener.”
