CNN plans extensive election coverage

With the General Elections taking the country by storm, both international and national media have girded their loins to provide an in-depth report on the polls. International media major CNN is also all set to provide extensive election coverage. Spokesperson of the house informed exchange4media.com that CNN's New Delhi Bureau Chief, Satinder Bindra would spearhead the comprehensive international coverage of the Lok Sabha Elections. And, to join him, there would be experienced journalists like Ram Ramgopal and Suhasini Haider – right from the beginning of the polls to the declaration of results. Daily in-depth report and several CNN exclusives would be aired during CNN's primetime news programmes, including CNN Today, World News Asia and World News, the spokesperson said.

The coverage of the polls would focus on some central themes like India's economic boom, growing influence of young voters and the country's quest for global power status.

“Our international audience of opinion-formers and decision makers can look forward to an in-depth commentary and analysis with coverage highlights that will include interviews with political figures and analysis of key issues, and live reports from New Delhi and around the country,” added the spokesperson.

In addition to the continuous updates on the Indian elections, CNN would also air special packages beginning April 19. These would include programmes like Colorful and Heated Campaign, India's Economic Boom, The Contradictions of India's Society: Wealthy and the Poor, Vajpayee's Transformation, Pakistan Ties and Kashmir as an Election Platform. All these programmes must keep the international audience glued to the tube, he said.
