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.
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.
