India’s leading TV Channel, India Today has launched a Hindi-language TV channel that promises to present only “good news.”

The latest channel named ‘Good News Today’ “will showcase stories of hope, human triumph, innovation and inspiration from different walks of life, from different parts of India and the world,” India Today Group vice-chairperson Kalli Purie told Arab News.

“We need to spread positivity, good stories and personalities no matter what the reality is,” she added.


According to Purie, the slogan of this channel is Achi Khabar, Sachi Khabar (good news, authentic news).


The country’s position has been falling rapidly on the World Press Freedom Index by Reporters Without Borders. In 2016, it was 136th, but in 2020 it dropped to 142nd.

Based in Uttar Pradesh (UP), India Today is a 24-hour English language television and has one of the largest viewerships in India. In addition, India has more than 160 national and regional news channels.
