Deccan Herald (DH) is an English language daily newspaper published from the Indian state of Karnataka by The Printers (Mysore) Private Limited, a family business run by the Nettakallappa family. It has seven editions printed from Bengaluru, Hubballi, Davanagere, Hosapete, Mysuru, Mangaluru, and Kalburgi.
Deccan Herald was launched on June 17, 1948. According to Gautham Machaiah,its owners purchased a dance club – Funnel’s owned by an Irish couple. The intention was of starting a movie theatre (there were already two other theatres on either side — Plaza and Liberty) but then opted for a newspaper, despite having “zero experience in journalism or print business”.
Founder K.N. Guruswamy was the eldest son of a prominent businessman of Ballari (Bellary), who later shifted to Bangalore, and the family belonged to the Ediga community, which was traditionally involved in toddy tapping. They won excise contracts and expanded their business across (then known as Mysore, now Karnataka). Bangalore was then under the Mysore kingdom, ruled by the Wodeyers, and lacked an English newspaper in those times. The then Diwan of Mysore, Arcot Ramaswamy Mudaliar, is believed to have been instrumental in convincing Guruswamy to start an English-language daily and he launched the firm The Printers (Mysore) Pvt Ltd. Justice P P Medappa, later the state’s chief justice, suggested the name Deccan Herald.
