The Morung Express is an English language newspaper published from Dimapur in Nagaland, India.[1] It was the first print newspaper in Nagaland with an online edition.

The Morung Express is an independent English language newspaper which provides an alternative voice to the dominant status quo. Based in Nagaland, India, The Morung Express was conceived from the Naga people’s historical realities and is guided by their voices and experiences. It emerged from the well-recognized concept that the core of a free press is based on “qualitative and investigative” journalism. Ensuring this is essential for contributing to a Naga public that makes informed decisions on issues that affect all spheres of life.

Furthermore, The Morung Express asserts that it is independent of government influence, and is NOT associated or related to any vested political party or political faction or commercial media interests. The Morung Express sustains its editorial autonomy while encouraging and strengthening the people’s freedom of expression as a catalyst in the democratization process.
