MediaCorp launches new Malay and Tamil services

Singapore-based MediaCorp has launched two new news and current affairs portals in Malay and Tamil.

The company says MediaCorp Berita and MediaCorp Seithi allow Malay and Tamil-speaking news consumers to follow major developments within and outside Singapore as well as key events of interest to the communities.

An application in March will optimise the website content for mobile and tablets.

“The free app for Android and IOS devices will make it an even more enriching experience for users with drop-down options that will bring you straight to the desired page at a tap,” says a MediaCorp spokesperson.

Supervising Editor for Tamil News and Current Affairs, Mr R. Nadarasan, says: “With this launch into a new digital stage, we are giving today’s busy consumers more choices and flexibility to be informed and entertained at their preferred times, or when they are on the move.”

For the Berita website, there will be updates from the Malay literary and artistic world in the Lifestyle/Literary segments. Movie and entertainment consumers can catch trailers and reviews on famed Bollywood and Kollywood screenings at Seithi.

Digital journalists working on the two portals are supported by established editorial teams in the MediaCorp Editorial Division that produces content for all the MediaCorp TV, radio, print and digital platforms. The Malay News and Current Affairs department produces content for TV on Suria and for radio on Warna and Ria, while the Tamil News and Current Affairs department produces programs for TV on Vasantham and for radio on Oli.

Supervising Editor for Malay News and Current Affairs, Mr Ibrahim Hassan, adds: “This new platform will definitely be a great addition to viewers and listeners who have been following our news and current affairs programs. They can now catch these programs and enhanced content conveniently from one portal.”
