Electronic Media VS Print Media

The Dawn was the first English Newspaper of Pakistan that was launched by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in 1940. So, it is the oldest English newspaper.
Newspaper comes under the category of Print Media and News Channel comes under the head of Electronic Media. The question is that Why did Dawn need a Dawn News Channel ? The reason is that News channel is a kind of electronic media which provides instant news to masses rather than print media. Following are the advantages of electronic media (News Channel) over Print media (Newspaper):-
Electronic Media includes TV, Radio, Internet, Smartphone etc and Print Medic include only newspaper, So electronics media is relatively quicker than print media to cater information to public. By just turning on your TV or Radio, you can watch or hear current news or happenings of the day. On the other hands, through newspaper you can only get news from some past day. Through electronic media, you can watch live telecasts of various events, so it is very effective than print media.
