ISLAMABAD: The management of Channel 24 has started hiring reporters at all their bureau offices including Islamabad with plans to transform the channel from current affairs to news in the next couple of months.
A source tells JournalismPakistan.com that the channel's Executive Director News and Director News have been interviewing interested candidates at all the bureau offices. Interviews in Islamabad were conducted a few days ago.
“We are planning to hire some 15 reporters for Islamabad bureau and around two dozen have been interviewed for the jobs,” he said.
Channel 24 was launched in October last year as the country's first-ever current affairs based television station.
“The top management has realized that a channel cannot make its mark in the industry until it includes a team of reporters to keep viewers abreast of minute-to-minute happenings besides programs on current affairs,” he said.
The channel is owned by Mohsin Naqvi, who is already running City 42 in Lahore and plans to launch City 41 in Faisalabad soon.
