CNN-News18 launches two more shows: India 360 and The Crux

With an aim to provide differentiated content to viewers, CNN-News18 recently initiated a revamp of its primetime with the launch of new shows, Face-Off At 9 @ 9 PM and Viewpoint @ 10 PM. Continuing with this process, the channel will unveil two more shows starting Monday evening at 8 p.m. with India 360 and The Crux at 8.30 p.m. Anchored by Senior Associate Editor Arunoday Mukharji and Executive Editor Anubha Bhonsle, respectively, the shows will add further to the channel’s primetime offering.

Hosted by Mukharji, India 360 will be a one-stop destination for the day’s top news stories. The 30-minute news bulletin will provide the viewer with non-stop news from India and around the world. Statistically rich and based on facts, the show will keep the viewers updated with all the latest news from the field of business, politics, sports, crime, and entertainment. With an aim to focus on stories that have not been covered through the day, India 360 will present only news in a fast-paced, crisp and, concise manner.

The Crux, anchored by award-winning journalist Anubha Bhonsle, will dive deep into a top story of the day through modern storytelling. With the help of high-quality reportage and a commitment to rigorously un-layer the stories, the show will have quick reactions from the guests on the story, sidestepping long and noisy discussions. The platform agnostic show will combine the strengths of both television news and social media, and will build on the channel’s commitment of immersive journalism.

Commenting on this, Radhakrishnan Nair, Managing Editor - CNN-News18, said, “I am very excited about all the changes that we are doing to our primetime programming. Our objective is to be the one-stop destination for views, discussions, credible opinions, day’s highlights, or in-depth coverage. We are confident that with this programming line-up, we would be able to achieve this objective.”

India 360 and The Crux are scheduled for weeknights at 8 p.m. and 8.30 p.m., respectively.
