NDTV President Prannoy Roy in his online address states that, "I
know this is common for news channels all over the world, but for
the first time in India we will have a fleet of helicopters exclusive
to NDTV -- to ensure we get you the news first, fastest and with
the right perspective."
Hinting at what would probably be his channels' cutting edge over
other channels, Roy says, "All our anchors are not just newsreaders.
Each one of them is an experienced journalist; people who will make
sure you get the truth, first."
Both the news channels will air shows like The Big Fight and
We The People along with a host of new programmes. Also,
another old favourite which will make a comeback is The World
This Week, which will look at world events from India's point
of view .
NDTV India, the 24-hour Hindi news channel will have anchors like
Dibang, Nidhi Kulpati, Abhigyan Prakash, Naghma, Pankaj Pichauri,
Sikta Deo, Prasoon Kumar Vajpayee and Rupali Tiwari and sports anchors
Sujatha Padmanabhan and Afshan Anjum.
NDTV 24x7, the 24-hour English news channel on the other hand,
will have well known journalist-anchors like Rajdeep Sardesai, Barkha
Dutt, Vikram Chandra, Sonia Varma, Arnab Goswami, Nidhi Razdan and
Srinivasan Jain; business news anchors - Shivnath Thukral, Manvi
Sinha, Manisha Natarajan and Chetan Sharma and sports anchor Sonali
Chander, to name a few.
