Sambad is the only newspaper in the State of Orissa to be published simultaneously from Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Berhampur, Rourkela and Balasore.
The Sambad was established in 1984 with Saumya Ranjan Patnaik, son-in-law of J.B. Patnaik, in the saddle. Saumya Ranjan was once a senior BJP leader in Orissa but his father-in-law is said to be the main force behind the paper.
