India’s leading English news channel from Times Network has launched a special programme, ‘Confront’ with Rahul Shivshankar, Editor-in-Chief, Times Now.
Times Now continues to raise the bar of television news in the country with its innovative journalism. Moderated by Rahul Shivshankar, ‘Confront’, the one-hour weekend show features two prominent panellists debate social and political on topics including State issues, economy, elections, etc., with a conclusive end to the discourse.
Moving away from the contentious debates where panellists often talk at each other rather than talk to each other, Rahul Shivshankar conducts the well-researched debate with decorum, focused to provide the viewers with clear, insightful information. Two weeks since its premier, the show has featured notable figures – Jay Panda, Former Member of Parliament, Yogendra Yadav, National President, Swaraj India, Sudheendra Kulkarni, Politician and Kanwal Sibal, Former Foreign Secretary. This week’s episode of ‘Confront’ on Saturday, August 25, will feature Mukul Rohtagi, Former Attorney General of India and Mohan Parasaran, Former Solicitor General of India as the panellists, where they will discuss claims that the NDA is meddling in Judicial affairs.
Speaking on the new new show, Rahul Shivshankar, Editor-in-Chief, Times Now said, “Confront is launched with a clear objective to provide conclusive facts and information out of the confronting conversations. The show breaks away from the typical debate formats, which leave little room for conversations, where the viewers are left with no answers to the burning social issues. Through this show, we aim to provide uninterrupted, transparent and healthy discussions to burning issues that need to be addressed on priority”.
