Rapid-fire news and liberalisation part of new programmes on STAR News

STAR News is seeking to wrap up 24 all important news stories of the day in just 30 minutes in a rapid-fire format. ‘24 Ghante, 24 Reporter’, the new news bulletin on STAR News, premiers on June 26 and will be on air Monday-Friday at 10 pm.

This news bulletin will be entirely led by the reporter directly from the location. The programme will comprise various segments to provide a theme-based delivery of news – Sabse Bari Khabar, Desh, Shahar, Gunah, Duniya, Khel, Karobar, Cinema and TV.

With the launch of 24 Ghante, 24 Reporter, the popular metro specific news bulletin – City 60 – will be pushed to 10.30 pm from June 26.

STAR News is also chronicling 15 years of liberalisation in India through a special series titled ‘Roti Kapda aur Mobile’. The series captures India’s emergence as a vibrant, free-market democracy capable of flexing its muscles in the global economy – a dynamic story first set in motion with the swearing-in of the Narasimha Rao government at the Centre on June 21, 1991.

The series will focus on the transformation that is unfolding everyday in the cities and towns of India – mills of the old economy making way for the malls of the new era. The on-ground ‘travelogue’ series walks through the cities and towns of India to establish the quiet struggle of a billion people for prosperity and dignity. Going beyond the much-trumpeted economic aspect, the series will focus on the sociological impact on changing lifestyles over the last decade and a half and seek to bring out a human story unique to this impact.

‘Roti Kapda aur Mobile’ features on Desh Videsh from Monday-Friday at 5 pm, with repeats at 6.45 am and 12.45 pm on STAR Savera and Khabar Din Bhar, respectively.
