Magazines

FRONTLINE

Frontline, the fortnightly English magazine from the publishers of The Hindu, has had a distinguished presence in the media world. Frontline's journalism is characterised by in-depth, insightful reporting and analysis of issues and events at regional, national and international levels. Excelling in long-form journalism, the topics Frontline covers range from politics, economics and social issues to the environment, nature, culture and cinema. No other Indian magazine reports world affairs as exhaustively as Frontline does. Its science coverage has won international acclaim. Intellectually stimulating book reviews and informative, exciting photo features are regular items on the Frontline menu. The magazine has remained particularly focussed on people's concerns and has therefore refused to accept uncritically the policies and programmes of successive governments. It has fought and supported the battles against social evils. Its fact-based, non-sensational stories with a strong human interest component have had an impact on decision-making at the regional and national levels. An important factor that sets Frontline apart from other magazines is its progressive orientation: it is unflinchingly secular, democratic and pro-people. Naturally, it has built up a loyal, intelligent and socially conscious readership.

SPORTSTAR

Sportstar, The Hindu's weekly sports tabloid was started on July 13, 1978. It has, since then, continued to set high standards in sports journalism for decades. Sportstar is the largest read sports magazine in the country. The magazine features extensive coverage and expert analysis of national and international sporting events and full length features on all forms of sports. Admired and treasured for its invaluable editorial and pictorial content, Sportstar hits the stands every Wednesday in Chennai and on Thursday and Friday in other parts of the country.
