Star News has launched a new show called ‘Main Hoon Na’. “The attempt is to bridge the gap between consumers and corporate houses,” quoted an official communiqué. The program is a weekly consumer grievance-redressal show, and is based on the message to encourage consumer activism. The show premiered on May 26, 2007, and is placed in the Saturday 8.00 pm block. Tisca Chopra is the anchor of the show.
The communiqué further quoted, “The show will attempt to settle new benchmarks in the industry by bringing grieving consumers and respective corporate representatives face-to-face to redress various issues. The show springs from the growing consumerism in the country today and the fact consumer awareness is still in its infancy.”
The process for having one’s grievance on-air requires the viewer to contact the channel, and share the problem. The channel’s team will then contact the consumer, investigate and understand the issue, establish validity of the case and then approach the concerned corporate house to facilitate a discussion -- all of this would be broadcast on the show.
