ABP News is one of the largest Hindi news channels in India, owned by the ABP News Network, which in turn is owned by the ABP Group, a primarily Bengali-language media group. It was known as Star News from its launch in 1998 until Star sold its news channels to ABP Group, with the rebrand effective from 1 June 2012. It has used the slogan Aapko Rakhe Aage (Keeping You Ahead) since its inception.
This English-language logo was used alongside the Hindi version (introduced in 2003) until 2006, after which it was retired. Later, the SE Asia feed was now replaced with simulcast of Fox News in 2006.
Star took full control of the channel in 2003 from NDTV, and turned it into STAR News, a 24-hour Hindi news channel.
Star India exited the news business in 2012, selling it to the ABP Group, which already had a stake in the Bengali news channel Star Ananda. Therefore, on 1 June 2012, Star News (Hindi), Star Ananda (Bengali) and Star Majha (Marathi) were renamed to ABP News, ABP Ananda and ABP Majha, respectively.
On 18 January 2017, the logo colour was changed to red to match the logos of the other ABP News Network channels. A new slogan, Har Khabar Par Pakad (Control Over Every News), was introduced.
The channels and properties of the ABP Network (ABP News, ABP Ananda, ABP Majha, ABP Asmita, ABP Sanjha, ABP Ganga and the news portal ABP Live) rebranded with a new logo scheme on 16 December 2020, removing the box from around the channel logos. The new brand identity was conceptualised by Saffron Brand Consultants.
Moreover, all the TV channels moved their logo bugs from the traditional top right corner, the standard for most Indian news channels, to the rarely-used bottom left corner (which was always used by ABP Ganga since its launch in 2019).
