The United News of Bangladesh (UNB) is bringing high-quality video content from The Associated Press (AP) in revolutionizing its digital presence through visual journalism for its millions of viewers, listeners and readers both at home and abroad.
While both parties have enjoyed a partnership since 1988, UNB and AP entered into an agreement on January 1, 2021 to this effect.
“We’ve expanded our partnership with AP to provide our valued clients with the widest selection of video content possible as the world of journalism is changing fast through the disruption of technology,” said UNB Editor-in-Chief Enayetullah Khan.
Nahar Khan, UNB Director of Digital & Strategy, added: “We are likely to see significant innovation in digital storytelling and visual journalism in the media landscape. Through skill and capacity building, UNB is equipped to take on these risks in new formats and distribution.”
Serving as a credible source of information since 1988, UNB shares good relations with its valued clients in Bangladesh’s media industry.
Enayetullah Khan said UNB wants to work closely with its subscribers to provide relevant, timely and value-added content in the backdrop of an evolving digital media with the emergence of technology.
UNB will also provide its readers with unique coverage and compelling content on its website (www.unb.com.bd).
Founded in 1988, UNB is the first fully digitalized wire service in South Asia and is the principal partner in news exchange with AP, one of the world’s largest wire services.
Currently, UNB has News Exchange Agreements with 37 countries in the world, including PTI of India, Xinhua of China, Kyodo of Japan, Bernama of Malaysia, AsiaNet, Yonhap of South Korea, ITAR-TASS News Agency of Russia, FAAPA of Africa, CAN of Cyprus, Moroccan News Agency (MAP), Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA) and Emirates News Agency (WAM) of the UAE to name a few.
