Gurdeep Singh Sappal : Amrita Rai joins as Managing Editor, HashTagNews and HindKisan. Today, as I wish our dear friend and colleague Amrita a very happy birthday, I would also like to announce that she is now the Managing Editor of our webTV channels, Viz. HashTagNews and HindKisan.
I am confident that her journalistic acumen, her never-say-die spirit and her understanding of people, politics & policies will take our nascent media initiative to great heights.
It is almost three months since we launched the trial version of our web channel Hind Kisan. Most of this period was spend in developing our capacity, recruiting our team and getting our office ready. Yet, we did maintain a continuous update of original content, which provided a glimpse of our plan and work.
In this short period, we have more than one lakh thirteen thousand followers on our page and our stories have clocked nearly a crore views across various platforms. Your response and appreciation is a matter of great satisfaction for our team. It certainly reaffirms our belief in grassroots and objective journalism and encourages us to do better.
Now, as we move into the final phase of our launch, we start the Facebook page of our general news channel, which is named:
Hashtagnews.tv or simply, #news
We start with a show on foreign affairs titled INDIA’S EYE, hosted by ace journalist Bharat Bhushan.
It is followed by an interview of veteran leader Sharad Yadav, in our programme INTERVIEW.
I hope, you would like these and continue to support us. On behalf of our team, I thank you all for your appreciation and encouragement.
