As the digital age fuels a massive change across our country, CNN-IBN is all set to take the leap with its flagship initiative, The Citizen Journalist Show that will now be seen as CJ+, the common man’s fight against injustice in an all-new, digital and social media powered format.
Starting 1st August, 2015, CJ+ will hit the screens in an all new-avatar, set to connect with its viewers digitally. With this new format, CNN-IBN will expand its platform for the common man to voice his thoughts and concerns, through easily accessible digital tools.
Although, the story ideas and storytelling that builds on the CJ Show’s rich legacy and authenticity in the reportage world remain intact, this time the show will push boundaries, and will use discrete social media platforms like video blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Hangouts and Skype to enhance its story telling techniques. To complement the show, a refreshed website will also be launched, further enriching audience experience.
Speaking about the show, Mr. Radhakrishnan Nair, Managing Editor, CNN-IBN, said, “The whole objective behind CJ+ is to empower the audience and give them a bigger stage to participate in the whole news gathering system and fight for their rights. We are grateful to work on such an innovative program and hope that we continue receiving an overwhelming response from the audience.”
Don’t miss CJ+ starting from 1st Aug, 2015, every Saturday at 1:30 PM & 9:30 PM and on Sunday at 5:30 PM & 10:30 PM, exclusively on CNN-IBN.
