ARY Network has officially announced the takeover of troubled channel, BOL TV.
In a speech delivered to the BOL Network’s staff at the BOL Auditorium, Mr Salman Iqbal said that the move was made in support of the media industry and the journalistic community of Pakistan. He said that letting such a beautiful vision of a Pakistani company go down just like that had become really hard for him. He further declared that being a true Pakistani, the vision which the BOL Network came up with and the impressive setup that they had been creating for past couple years, has time and again touched his heart.
Speaking at the biggest takeover in the media history of Pakistan, he said that all his life he has worked for the ‘Made in Pakistan’ title and is proud of being a Pakistani. This made ARY’s vision very close to BOL’s, so the Bolwalas should realign their energies and work towards making a better Pakistan. He motivated the team to go ahead and make their channels up and running as soon as possible.
He reiterated his commitment to BOL’s staff that they need not worry as the policies and vision of their network will be preserved and he will personally sit with key team members to attend their immediate issues. He also reaffirmed that ARY’s strength and experience will be used to bring the network back on its feet in no time.
BOL TV officially begins broadcasting in early September.
