bdnews24.com is one of Bangladesh's leading newspaper/media groups. With an Alexa ranking placing it consistently among the world's top websites. It has also persisted as the country's leading English language as well as bilingual English and Bengali website.
In 2005, the company launched initially as the country’s first exclusively web-based news agency, and was known as BDNEWS – the other two news agencies (the state-owned Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha or BSS and the privately-owned United News of Bangladesh or UNB) being at the time teleprinter-based “wire service”. Following a take-over in mid-2006 at the agency's holding company, Bangladesh News 24 Hours Ltd, ownership is vested between two sole Board Directors: Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief Toufique Imrose Khalidi, and Chair of the company Asif Mahmood.
In October 2006, bdnews24.com relaunched as Bangladesh's first free and exclusively online newspaper, and was rebranded as bdnews24.com. Editor-in-Chief Toufique Imrose Khalidi is a journalist and former BBC broadcaster. On 28 May 2012 the office of bdnews24.com was attacked by men with machetes injuring three journalists.
