History of Malayalam journalism dates back to eighteen forties. Journals and periodicals were first started by Christian Missionaries and their contribution to the development of Malayalam prose and the promotion of journalism had been quite considerable.
The first vernacular Magazine published from Kerala (Rajyasamacharam) is edited by famous German scholar Dr.Herman Gundart in 1847. After that more than 5000 periodicals were published in various categories from our state.
