Launched on 5 August 2004, Udaya News, previously Udaya Varthegalu (Varthegalu meaning News), was the first 24-hour Kannada news channel in India.
Due to financial losses, it and Telugu sister channel Gemini News stopped all news programming in October 2017, but remained on air for several months before shutting down on 1 February 2019. Gemini News was replaced by Bengali entertainment channel Sun Bangla two days later, on 3 February, while Udaya News was used for the test transmission of Sun Marathi, which was eventually launched on 17 October 2021.
