STAR News scores big with Wah! Cricket

" 7 of top 8 cricket programmes amongst the Top 100 news programmes

Mumbai, May 10, 2006: STAR News, the Channel known for its programming competence and diversity has reiterated its pre-eminence in cricketing news too, proving that when it comes to reporting on cricket, India tunes in to STAR News. The Top 100 programmes for TAM Week 17 (April 23-April 29) include 8 cricket/sports related programmes, out of which 7 are on STAR News. Wah! Cricket and Operation Vijay, the premium cricket properties on STAR News hit the competition out of the ground.

Wah! Cricket has consistently scored as the top cricket-related programme. It reiterated its top billing in all three time slots for its well-applauded coverage of the recently concluded highly emotive India-Pakistan cricket series. However, for TAM Week 17, which did not have any significant cricketing developments on-field, STAR News scored for its well-rounded reporting off-field too. By presenting an overall analysis and impact on the happenings in the cricket world, including Sachin's Birthday, Brand Dhoni, Team Selection etc., STAR News scored big to feature 7 of its cricketing programmes in the Top 100 programmes. Amongst the cricketing programmes, Aaj Tak's cricketing programme came in only at # 6 with a TVR of 0.36. Besides, it also garnered 26% of the marketshare in the 7.30 to 8 pm slot, leaving Aaj Tak behind at 22% and NDTV India far behind at 12%. India TV and Zee News followed next at 10% and 9% marketshare.
