NewsX, India News line up special coverage on PM Narendra Modi’s US visit

MUMBAI: All eyes are trained on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s second visit to the US, which is also the first time in three decades that an Indian PM visits the west coast.


Understanding the geopolitical and economic gravity that this event brings for India and the world at large, news channels NewsX and India News have lined up expansive coverage for viewers throughout Modi’s visit.


The programming line-up on NewsX and India News includes special shows, exclusive interviews, roundtable discussions and prime time debates.

While NewsX will present roundtable discussions in collaboration with the US-India Political Action Committee (USINPAC), an American, Bipartisan Political Action Committee representing Indian-Americans, India News will report special stories from New York.


This special line-up of programming on NewsX and India News will be driven by the channel's team of editorial experts led by NewsX editor-in-chief Rahul Shivshankar and India News editor-in-chief Deepak Chaurasia along with veteran journalists like Kartikeya Sharma, Geeta Mohan and Sheetal Rajput, who will travel to the US to cover the visit and provide the viewers with in-depth live reportage.
