BENGALURU: The combined ratings of the top 5 English news ratings as per Broadcast Audience Research Council of India (BARC) plunged to their lowest in week 23 of 2019 (Saturday, 13 July 2019 to Friday, 19 July 2019, week or period under review) since week 13. The combined weekly ratings of the top 5 English news channels at 1.809 million weekly impressions was far lower than the earlier lowest of 1.848 million weekly impressions in week 24 of 2019.

The list of channels in BARC’s weekly list of top 5 English news channels for week 29 of 2019  were the same as in week 28, except for a small shuffling in ranks. Four of the channels had a drop in viewership, while ratings of one went up.
