Aaj Tak to revamp programming from tomorrow

MUMBAI: The leader has to keep pace with the times too.

Aaj Tak, the news channel that has cornered 59 per cent of the market share and an enviable reach of over 30 million households, is revising its shows and show timings from tomorrow.

The aim of the revamp, says the channel, is to 'help it climb up the value chain'. To this end, Aaj Tak has included new programmes like Half-hour specials, Jurm ki Duniya and Ho Na Sakaa. Whereas Jurm ki Duniya will be a weekly wrap-up of the crime scene of the country, Ho Na Sakaa is a weekly programme that would take stock of events that did not turn out as expected or failed to happen. 

The format and treatment would be chatty and informal, with most of the anchoring being done outdoors. This concept is unique, and untried in any other news channel, claims Aaj Tak. The half-hour specials titled Vishesh on the other hand would be a daily programme that would focus on topical and important issues on that day and would provide an indepth analysis into that topic. 

The timings for Seedhi Baat, Duniya Aaj Tak and Cinema Aaj Tak are also being changed to target the viewers more effectively, says an official release. This move by the channel is an effort to create more flexibility and freshness to the content, and to air programmes in keeping with the mood of the viewers at a given point of time, the release adds. 

According to Aaj Tak CEO G Krishnan, "These programming changes are being implemented to provide news and information more effectively and to cater to the viewing needs of our target audience. With the implementation of these innovations we will transform news presentation, make it more lively and appealing, and thereby draw more viewers to the channel."
