JK News Live derives its name from J&K Live News, which flows through the Kashmir Valley, which includes the districts of Srinagar, Bandipora, and Baramulla in the Kashmir Division of Jammu and Kashmir, India.
The website was launched in July 2016 in Ganderbal, Srinagar by a Kashmiri journalist Ehsaan Yousf. It has been covering topics related to development, infrastructure, and healthcare, particularly in the Kashmir Valley. It also covers current news across the world.
On 21 January 2022, JK News Live started daily short news round-up in various local languages of Kashmir Valley, which includes English and Hindi languages with additional support of Urdu language. This was the first time Bhaderwahi language were used for broadcasting news as these languages are endangered.
In 2023, JK News Live was nominated for the “Best News Portal Award” by the Kashmiri Core Committee, an amalgamation of fifteen literary groups in Jammu and Kashmir, for promoting the local Pahari language.
