Ex-Star News anchors to present budget programme in Zee

Zee News has lined up former NDTV anchors Shireen Sethi, Arup Ghosh and Sharad Sharma to present its Union Budget programmes. The three popular faces of STAR News had quit Prannoy Roy’s organisation in September last year and floated their own company called Network 1.

Network 1 joint managing director Arup Ghosh said that the company would jointly work on the content along with the Zee team. The entire programming will be branded as a Zee News and Network 1 co-production.

Network I is in talks with Zee to produce two programmes pertaining to business news, current affairs and infotainment. At the same time, it was also negotiating with STAR, CNBC and TV Today.

During the budget, bulk of the live presentation will be done by Shireen Sethi, a former host of STAR Business News and Good Morning India. The other two will do the round-ups and special capsules.
