Since its re-launch, Jagran TV Chicago’s Facebook page has seen its viewership grow exponentially. The page has garnered over 10,000 likes within a span of just three months. One of its finest qualities is that its decision makers have focused on bringing devotees quality over quantity. Every Saturday and Sunday, the page goes live for devotional programs by both established artists and artists that are looking to make a place for themselves. In addition to the weekly programs, the page holds a katha (religious discourse) on various topics for one week each month. One of the main pillars of the organization is to help educate viewers who’d like to learn more about our culture and our religious teachings.
The founder of Jagran TV, which was originally a commercial free regional television show, started the program in 2003 with the intention of giving devotees a way to do Darshan without having to leave home. Due to Covid-19, Avi Verma re-launched Jagran TV on May 31, 2020, under the banner of Jagran TV Chicago on Facebook, because millions of people across the world are unable to visit their local temples. Since starting the page, thousands have joined worldwide to participate in the weekly programs, and Jagran TV Chicago is set to hit ten thousand active followers in the coming weeks.
