TAMWatch: Aaj Tak, Times Now gain much on Lalit Modi story

The focus of all news channels has shifted to the ‘Vyapam Scam’ while the ‘Lalit Modi Immigration Case’ (or ‘LalitGate’) has witnessed a sudden drop in coverage. It would be interesting to see if the ‘Vyapam Scam’ turns out to be the next big thing for news channels in terms of viewership. Aaj Tak garnered maximum ROI for this story, followed by India TV within Hindi News Genre. (HSM, CS 15+). Times Now devoted the maximum time to ‘LalitGate’, that too with the ROI three times that of genre average (All India 1 Mn+, CS 25+ Males AB). The coverage of ‘Lalitgate’ on Times Now was highest among all the news channels. This emerged from the analysis conducted by the S Group, the analytical research arm of TAM Media Research.



Both Hindi and English news channels covered the Lalit Modi case extensively till July 1, post which there has been a shift of focus. Before that, news channels have made sure to gain viewership from the same.


Both Aaj Tak and Times Now would be hoping to carry the momentum into ‘Vyapam Scam’. As on July 8, both these channels were leading in terms of coverage. We will have to wait for the next week’s TAM data, to see who the winner in ‘Vyapam Scam’ battle is.
