India’s leading English news channel, Times Now has confirmed the launch of its new show ‘India Upfront’, which will be hosted by new signing and Chief Editor, Rahul Shivshankar.
Starting from Monday 23rd January at 20:00, ‘India Upfront’ has been described as a path-breaking new show by putting hard facts – upfront. Times Now aims to bring the focus back on facts to construct the narrative around verifiable information about events that touch people’s lives.
Shivshankar said, “The show fills a massive void at prime time on news channels as most of them have fallen victim to the temptation of putting rhetoric ahead of facts therefore compromising on long-held values that separate news from propaganda.”
Times Now is expected to launch a slew of new shows to ease off the pressure from ‘The Newshour’, which was formerly hosted by Arnab Goswami. It is now fronted by Navika Kumar and Tina Sharma Tiwari.
