With its positioning ‘Ab Badlega Bharat, Banega Navbharat’, the channel will attempt to be the new voice propelling change through an inclusive movement for a new India, and champion a unique brand of action-oriented journalism driven by decisive content, announced the broadcast network on Friday.

In an attempt to break away from stereotypical news formats, the channel will explore an interactive & innovative news delivery that focuses on issues that directly impact the people and entails an in-depth and conclusive analysis of news through solution-oriented discussions, it added.

Commenting on the launch, Times Network, MD and CEO, MK Anand said, “We have dominated the English news category with our flagship brand, Times Now, ever since we came into the space. We are now thrilled to mark our debut into Indian language News with our maiden Hindi news channel. We believe News has the power to transform and create an impact for a better society. With Times Now Navbharat, we are pioneering disruption with a powerful proposition centred on the core promise of bringing news that will drive change, where we follow a Content philosophy that puts Social Impact and not Ratings at the centre. I am confident Times Now Navbharat will contribute to further improve the Hindi News broadcast space which is already served by some of the best Media brands.”
