MUMBAI: Last week, the news of CNN-IBN’s most popular anchors moving on to another channel surprised many. Starting tonight, TV Today Group’s English news channel Headlines Today will begin a new show with Karan Thapar called ‘To the Point’.
The one hour show produced by the channel will air on weekdays at 8:30 pm that will focus on a range of topics. The pilot episode will start off with an exit poll. To the Point is replacing News Night that earlier used to air between 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Centre Stage between 9:00 pm to 9:30 pm.
Thapar has been notable for his shows such as ‘Devil’s Advocate’ and ‘The Last Word’ on CNN-IBN. He has over three decades of experience in journalism and has won several awards.
He has his own production house Infotainment Television that makes programmes for BBC, Doordarshan and Channel News Asia.
