Mumbai: Journalist and Firstpost managing editor Palki Sharma will host a new show called Vantage, which will air every weekday at 9 p.m. on Firstpost.com and its YouTube channel starting this Republic Day.
The show will have many firsts to its credit. This will be the first time audiences will be treated to global stories and geopolitical developments that have an Indian perspective, something which is missing from the present-day media landscape. Vantage will also mark the first time a top TV news personality will host a digital first show.
Furthermore, the show will bring India’s perspective on the world to global audiences. Spearheaded, curated, and hosted by Sharma, Vantage promises well-researched and unbiased insights into global events that have the capacity to impact human lives.
"While a lot of international news channels report on India, they tend to view developments from their own editorial lens. They seldom offer the full story, let alone the story from India’s perspective. It’s important for us as a nation to be heard internationally, with detailed reportage on things that matter to us, and I will be trying my best to deliver that," said Sharma.
Putting nuance over news, Vantage will truthfully give the viewers facts, analysis and context, addressing the need of educative and informative content on a global scale.
Firstpost.com, part of the Network18 group, offers incisive opinions, in-depth analysis and views that matter. It seeks to serve as a trusted guide to the crush of news and ideas around you. The show will also be aired on CNN-News18 on weekdays at 10 p.m.
