Beschrijving Regional Language Television in India

This book examines the evolution and journey of regional language television channels in India. First of its kind, it looks at the coverage, uniqueness, ownership and audiences of regional channels in 14 different languages across India, including Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Urdu, Assamese, Bhojpuri, Gujarati, Kannada, Kashmiri, Odia, Punjabi, and Malayalam. It brings together researchers, scholars, media professionals, and communication teachers to document and reflect on language as the site of culture, politics, market, and social representation.


The volume discusses multiple media histories and their interlinkages from a subcontinental perspective by exploring the trajectories of regional language television in terms of geographical boundaries, state, language, identities, and culture. It offers comparative analyses across regional language television channels and presents interpretive insights on aspects of television culture and commerce, contemporary challenges, mass media technology and future relevance.   


Rich in empirical data, this book will be an essential read for scholars and researchers of media studies, television studies, communication studies, sociology, political studies, language studies, regional studies, and South Asian studies. It will also be useful to professionals and industry bodies in television media and broadcasting, journalists and television channels.
