He brings with him a great deal of expertise in business and political reportage. We are sure that he will be an invaluable asset to our channel.”

As a channel, I feel that they have established their supremacy over competition in terms of perception, quality of presentation and intelligent reporting. As economic activity is growing in all areas of life, it’s essential to have something for the Hindi audiences as well. Hindi offerings from the CNBC stable would command a different level of respect. Business programming in the Hindi language offers new and exciting possibilities and challenges.”
