SYDNEY—The joint forces of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation, Armenian Relief Society, Homenetmen, and Hamazkayin Educational and Cultural Society have announced the formation of a bold, new media entity for Armenian-Australians — Armenia Media Incorporated.
Armenia Media will launch several products in coming months, which will ensure the community has unprecedented, bilingual access to Armenian news, views and events from Australia and the broader Armenian world.
Armenia Media products will include the popular Armenia Online (Armenia.com.au), Armenia Mobile, Armenia Magazine (a new version of the current Armenia newspaper), Armenia TV, and Armenia Radio (a new version of Sartarabad Radio).
More details on the above will be released to the community at a launch in May 2014.
Leading this project is the inaugural Armenia Media Board, which is staffed by Kaylar Michaelian (Chairman), Nora Sevagian (Secretary), Narbeh Hacobian (Treasurer), Papig Chakmakjian, Karina Arakel, Viken Kortian, and Haig Kayserian.
Armenia Media Chairman Kaylar Michaelian said: “The official launch of Armenia Media, and our media products, will be an historic occasion for the Armenian-Australian community.”
“Our aim is to bring our community closer together by quenching their thirst for information with the use of all technologies we have available.”
Michaelian added: “We are working very hard as a Board to deliver on this giant initiative and will be calling on members of the community to assist us in coming weeks and months.”
The Armenia Media Board has promised to make further announcements regarding progress in coming weeks and months.
