Also, Sukarno Sen has joined as Kolkata bureau chief. Prior to NewsX, he has worked with CNN-IBN, IBN7 and Zee News.

Said a channel spokesperson, "This is an important milestone for NewsX and part of our strategy of incrementally but continuously strengthening our leadership team. At NewsX, it's our endeavour to deliver news and programmes that are informative, engaging and timely. The recent hiring will give a strong leadership to the team which has been delivering fresh content and programming."
