Barun Das, CEO, Zee News, said, “Today, many news channels undermine audience’s intelligence. You cannot challenge your audience’s intelligence. We decided to change our positioning line from ‘Haqeeqat Jaisi Khabar Vaisi’ to Zara Sochiye’ as we want to get our viewers thinking about various issues raised by our channel.”
BV Rao, group editor, Zee News, added, “It’s a very strong proposition that we are offering. Our opening story at 10pm on Badi Khabar will show that. It’s a chilling story and we are proud to say that it’s not a sting operation. We want to return to the good old days of journalism, and we realise that it’s not going to happen overnight. But this story will offer a glimpse of what to expect from us in the coming days.”
