The Dhaka Tribune is a Bangladeshi English-language compact newspaper published nationwide from the capital Dhaka. The publisher of the newspaper is K. Anis Ahmed, while Zafar Sobhan serves as the Editor. Dhaka Tribune was first published on April 19, 2013 when Bangladesh due to the rise of a few radical forces was shaken and a series of propaganda campaign was launched by a few far-right media against the progressive population of the country.
The motto of the newspaper is The news you want. No more, no less. On the additional hand, the initial marketing campaign Glad to be a Bangladeshi was changed to I am made in Bangladesh.
The newspaper, however, started as a broadsheet, and became a tabloid on March 1, 2015. Some of its regular supplements TMAG, Avenue T were subsequently merged with T-Junction after the change. Other notable supplements include Weekend Tribune, Arts & Letters and Treehouse. Notwithstanding Arts & Letters was discontinued after December, 2014.
