RK Arora Announces Launch of National Hindi News Channel, JK 24X7
Dated: November 02, 2016
Former Zee Media CEO RK Arora has acquired a significant stake in JK Media Network owned by Subash Chowdhary and Tapinder Kumar. The media company has launched a national Hindi news channel – JK 24X7 News – and a regional news channel in Jammu & Kashmir – Gulistan News. A Chartered Accountant by profession, Arora has over 25 years of experience. He recently stepped down as Executive Director and CEO of Zee Media Corporation Limited (ZMCL). Prior to ZMCL, he has worked with various media houses such as News Nation, India News, News 24 and India TV.
The brand positioning for JK 24X7 News is inspired by the thought, “AAO BADLEN HUM”, spurring change and emboldening the voice of the changing India. Believing in principle, "You must be the change you want to see in the world", JK 24X7 news is making an effort to create a differentiation in the news genre by bringing about a change in itself by first moving away from the clutter.
JK 24X7 News is available on all major cable networks and will shortly be available on all DTH platforms. The network has plans for expansion of their bouquet of channels in different genres in near future.
