  • How to increase advertiser interest in the news domain- There is not one channel with a top line of 500 Crs. Smaller and regional GECs are same size as biggest news channels.
  • Social Media a disruptive influence - Broadcast journalists to find ways to engage with Media 360.
  • Are theatrics a must for News channels to attract advertisers and Scale up or even sustain the business.
