News Editor in Chief Vishweshwar Bhat said, "Change, according
to the trend, is a must and change is a mark of creativity. We are
changing not only the offices, studios and looks but also in terms
of content and style of presentation. We will make our viewers part
of this change by taking their suggestions and implementing them
wherever and whenever necessary."
News CEO Suresh Selvaraj said, "Shifting of the studios was
an opportunity for us to bring in changes along with it. The changeover
of the studios was such a smooth and seamless process. Perhaps it
is very rare and may be the first time in the country that not a
single second was lost in transmission during the shifting of a
running, 24x7 news channel. We have also changed a whole lot of
our programs and the general look & feel of the channel. I am
confident that the new looks would appeal to our viewers and make
our brand presence much wider. We have used our own channel to promote
awareness. What else could be better than the 5 million reach that
we have got?. We have taken outdoor as support media."
