At a launch ceremony held at the Hard Rock Café in Kuta on Monday, April 9, 2012, Meidya Tama Suryodiningrat of The Jakarta Post told the invitees that the ‘Bali Daily’ was not a Jakarta newspaper published in Bali but a newspaper produced entirely in Bali.
The launch of Bali Daily makes the new newspapers the largest-circulation English language publication in Bali, rival weekly publication's inflated claims to the contrary.
He explained that the idea to published the four-page full-color Bali edition, delivered in tandem with The Jakarta Post, was born of a desire to provide the best service to the existing Bali readership of The Jakarta Post by answering a desire for more news about Bali.
Meidya, who is also know as Dimas, revealed that initial plans are to publish 15,000 copies distributed across 891 places in Bali. Plans are to distribute the publication free over the initial three months following the Bali Daily launch.
