The channel will go live with two new shows Monday night, with FaceOff At 9 and Viewpoint at 10 pm. Anchored by award winning journalists Deputy Executive Editor Zakka Jacob and Executive Editor Bhupendra Chaubey, respectively, the shows will build further on the channel’s positioning of On Your Side. Conceptualised to provide a fresh approach to news, the brand new shows with enhanced audience engagement, fresh packaging and even more incisive content aim to add multiple dimensions to primetime news.

FaceOff At 9 will witness a face-off between the biggest newsmakers on the top story of the day to bring out key insights on the same without drowning the same out in unnecessary noise. The show will capture various facets of the story to help viewers form their own informed opinions.

Viewpoint – an interactive and participative show, will explore various views on the day’s top news stories that will endeavour to disrupt the standard formats seen on news television. The show will cover the top 5 stories of the day and feature discussions with guests on the same. The show will also connect with viewers through the social media and at different locations on ground to bring their viewpoint on the debate. They will continue to map their sentiments till the end and will bring out the truth, driven by facts and not by any agenda.

Talking about the refreshed content, Radhakrishnan Nair, Managing Editor, CNN-News18 said, “We have always pushed the envelope in bringing our viewers differentiated content and formats. The new shows that we are launching are a reflection of our viewers’ expectations from us to continue to raise the quality of the news content that we offer – especially in terms of the credibility and substance of the debates and in-studio discussions that form the mainstay of primetime news television today."

Apart from these two, CNN-News18 has also lined up several other new shows that will be launched in a phased manner over the next couple of weeks.
