The absence of a Malayalam newspaper as the mouth piece of true nationalism was the reason behind establishing Janmabhumi. Janmabhumi was launched as an evening tabloid from Kozhikode as on 28th April 1975. In the first copy of editorial column, it was explicitly declared that Janmabhumi is a total independent national daily. The daily approaches each problem on the basis of national unity, moral sense, patriotism and public welfare and think, evaluate and formulate our opinion. The whole purpose of the creation of a daily with true nationalistic values was a small step to the noble cause of having one true nationalistic country – India.

At present JANMABHUMI have six editions published from Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, Kochi, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Kannur. Janmabhumi is marching ahead under the leadership of Sri. Kummanam Rajasekharan as Chairman, Sri. M. Radhakrishnan as Managing Director, Smt. Leela Menon as Chief Editor, T Arun Kumar as Editor, and Sri. K. B. Sreekumar as General Manager.
