Reporting between the lines: exclusive content only 

Frankly is a weekly online and annual print magazine bringing back the best elements of journalism tailored for today’s modern world settings. No more lazy reporting, irrelevant stories, and meaningless awards. At Frankly, we believe in quality over quantity, which is why our content is strictly original and exclusive.

Our website covers news, business, life, opinion and reviews across the Arab world, with a focus on our home, the UAE, while our annual print magazine is our rendition of a coffee table book featuring a curated collection of our most cherished timeless stories and long reads. 

Then there’s Behind Closed Doors, our weekly podcast show, where we mix business with pleasure by getting up-close-and-personal to explore untold truths of life beyond business. BCD is where private backroom conversations are made public, for the good of the public. It’s deliciously wicked, but equally enlightening. 

Get to know our community through Frankly Society, our business social club hosting intimate events that bring together our region’s most intellectual elite, and our youth’s most promising personalities.

So, join us on our journey to revive that nostalgic feeling of ‘back in the day’ quality storytelling. Subscribe to our weekly newsletter here, and our editor’s letter here.

Welcome to the good old days in the new age.
