The pecking order amongst Hindi-language channels doesn’t place IBN7 in the Top 3, as per ratings at least. And even in terms of perception. But in a coup of sorts, the channel has announced two shows – Vinod Dua Ka Prashnkaal at 8pm – Monday through Thursday and India 9 Baje at 9pm Monday through Friday with Sanjay Pugalia as the host.


Mr Dua’s show starts February 17 and Mr Pugalia will be on air from Feb 18.


Speaking on IBN7’s new prime-time line up, Vinay Tewari, Managing Editor, CNN-IBN and IBN7, said, “Elections are a complex, engaging and diverse event. It needs solid professionals who understand the complexities, who can simplify it for our audience and who believe in clarity over noise and sensation. We have brought in two of India’s leading journalists to take our primetime programming to the next level and who symbolise our beliefs about news. Vinod Dua, with his experience and unique style, is back to give viewers his take on the elections and engage them in our daily discourse while Sanjay Pugalia, whose understanding of politics and political economy is unparalleled, will debate and encapsulate the day’s major news on India 9 Baje.”


Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, IBN Network, said, “We are looking at possibly the most crucial general elections in Indian history. And IBN7 is set to launch two new shows anchored by two of the most influential and experienced journalists in the industry.”
