Under the campaign, #Dec18WithArnab, Republic TV had lined up exclusive coverage of the Gujarat & Himachal Pradesh Elections 2017 in the week leading up to the counting day and on counting day on December 18. Across Republicâs platforms there was non-stop programming which brought the most insightful coverage in real time.
Republic TV followed a 4-pronged approach to ensure high quality of reportage. This included â
- Real time & Non-stop coverage of counting, including in the early hours when Congress had moved ahead. The channel was live 7am onwards.
- Integrated newsroom with live updates on TV & across digital media (website and social media) Multimedia Live-blog which accurately represented the see-sawing drama from the counting
- Coverage in both English and Hindi
- Interesting patterns and correlations powered by Gramener which helped present the developing news in a comprehensible and meaningful manner
The channel made high impact with its reportage - It was one of the first to declare the BJP win in Gujarat and had holistic coverage with screen time devoted to wins and losses of key seats in both states.
