India TV is the nation’s leading Hindi news channel, which has consistently topped the news charts. Its success has been possible due to its fast-paced consistency and credibility in reporting events that take place in India and the rest of the world.
Rajat Sharma, one of the pioneers of TV journalism in India, has been leading India TV from the front with his two most popular shows, the longest-running TV show ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ and the daily prime-time news show ‘Aaj Ki Baat’. A Padma Bhushan awardee, Rajat Sharma had been grilling political leaders, Prime Ministers, film stars, godmen and artists for the last 27 years, while his prime-time show ‘Aaj Ki Baat’ encapsulates the happenings of the day in a fast-paced format.
Ritu Dhawan, managing director, India TV, is the livewire behind-the-scenes person, who has been directing the ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ show since its inception in 1993. Apart from her onerous responsibilities in management, she has been the brain behind the new look of the India TV channel, heading the massive team effort between anchors, producers, reporters, camerapersons, graphics designers, video editors and programmers, lending panache to the overall news telecast.
India TV was established 18 years ago, and it has a huge national audience with a whopping reach of over 100 million C&S homes. India TV has state-of-the-art digital connectivity, and its Broadcast Centre is spread over a campus of more than 1,28,000 sq. ft. in Sector 85, Noida.
At a time, when there is an overload of information across all media platforms, including digital, India TV provides a clutter-free experience for its viewers. Its programming mix is backed by a fresh and energetic approach, and yet it sticks to its credo ‘Shor Kam, Khabar Zyaada’ (less noise, more news).
