ABP Group ropes in 82.5 Communications for launch of ABP Desam

The agency's Bengaluru office will handle the business.

Mumbai: ABP Group has partnered with 82.5 Communications for the launch of its regional news platform ABP Desam in two Indian states - Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The agency's Bengaluru office will handle the business.

The launch campaign of ABP Desam is based on the central insight that regardless of borders, the people of these two states share the same interests. It highlights and celebrates the pride every Teluguites carry within themselves when it comes to their culture and especially their language, the agency said in a statement.

“It has been incredible working with 82.5 Communications on the launch of our new Telugu digital platform, ABP Desam," said ABP Network CEO, Avinash Pandey. "They understood the Telugu market, and coalesced their creative concepts with regional elements, which made the campaign well-suited to our vision for ABP Desam."

"Telegu is more than a language. It's a sense of belonging, it's a matter of pride, it's a way of building community. That's how passionate the people of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are towards their language," said 82.5 Communications – South, SVP and branch head, Naveen Raman. "We worked on that insight to celebrate their love towards the language through ABP Desam. This thinking is yet another example of what we as an agency do best - be a truly Indian agency by having an insider point of view and approach every time. We did it super successfully for ABP Nadu in Tamil Nadu. And now we are proud to do it again for ABP Desam.”

82.5 Communications - South, group creative directors Sangeetha Sampath and Ravi Cherussola added, “The unique history of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana requires an adept understanding of the people, their interests, and passions. A hyper-local approach is of the absolute essence because when it comes to something as serious as news, the regional truth becomes important. The launch digital film celebrates and highlights this via the digital film, social media work, and more.”
