Since its inception in March this year, I have been regularly following Khabarnama’s activities.
A friend had introduced me to it and requested me to review the site. especially in the context of the emerging online media market in Afghanistan. Having taken a long hard look at it, I think Khabarnama is a must read news portal for all things Afghanistan. Khabarnama comes across as one of the most professionally managed media organizations in Afghanistan, which covers local issues from unique perspectives. Besides hard news, Khabarnama also covers entertainment, sports, food, social issues. They use a wide variety of sources. Khabarnama has a dedicated team of young professionals reporting and writing for it. Their work at Khabarnama, would help them become well rounded professionals, which would be a big positive for the country’s fledgling media industry. Khabarnama delves into issues that many other media houses don’t. I therefore hope Khabarnama’s English version would be able to cater to international audiences interested in Afghan affairs.
