RECHARGED under a new leadership, the Nation Multimedia Group is committed to maintaining a spirit of professional journalism through objective, deep, accurate and independent reporting.
The group is moving towards the future on all platforms of communication to bring news and information to its audience, chief executive officer Somchai Meesen said on Wednesday in front of hundreds of participants from the business community and government agencies.
The group unveiled its new vision and direction at a Bangkok hotel on Wednesday, even as the media industry is facing challenges brought by technology disruption.
“We have a team of professional media personnel who report with a sense of social responsibility,” said Somchai, himself a former journalist. “We will report with depth, comprehensiveness and responsibility.”
Nation Multimedia Group Plc, one of Thailand’s leading media companies, has been at the forefront of the industry for nearly half a century.
The group currently runs Nation TV Channel 22 and NOW Channel 26 on the digital platform, as well as three leading newspapers – English-language newspaper The Nation, Thai business newspaper Krungthep Turakij and Thai mass-circulation newspaper Kom Chad Luek.
Also active in social media, the group has more than 18 million viewers across platforms.
