Dawn News is one of Pakistan's 24/7 Urdu news channels. Located in Karachi, the station is a subsidiary of Pakistan Herald Publications Limited (PHPL), Pakistan's largest English-language media group.
The station's test transmission took place on May 25, 2007, and the channel began its work on July 23, 2007. Originally broadcast in English on May 15, 2010, Dawn News evolved into an Urdu news channel after a successful test broadcast for four hours a day. The transformation was mainly due to the financial crisis and a weak audience in the country.
Express 24/7 replaced it as the only English Pakistani news channel for a short time until it was shut down by Express Media Group for financial reasons.
The Dawn News test show was launched by former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. The full launch of the channel coincided with the outcome of a Supreme Court case that cleared Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, who was removed from office by General Musharraf. The channel was originally located at Haroon House, PHPL's headquarters, but later moved to its current premises in West Wharf, Karachi.
The channel has an online broadcast available for viewing abroad.
