CNN-IBN has brought fresh primetime programming on weekdays. Its top running show ‘The Last Word’, presented by Karan Thapar, has now become a weeknight primetime show from Monday to Friday at 8 PM. The show delves into the major headlines of the day, focusing on adding depth to current stories. Earlier, ‘The Last Word’ was a weekly show on Friday at 10 PM.

Besides, the news channel has introduced a new show – ‘News 360’ – as a weeknight primetime show which aims to present a complete wrap of the day. The news bulletin covers the top stories and news that have happened during the day. The fast paced bulletin, which started from yesterday, February 6, will be aired from Monday to Friday at 8:30 PM.

Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, CNN-IBN, IBN7 and IBN-Lokmat, said, “Karan Thapar is a man with vast experience and passion for truth. We really look forward to this version of ‘The Last Word’ which will decode and analyse the daily news with the insightful perspective and sharpness of Karan Thapar.”

“With the demand for holistic news covering every sphere of the daily news, ‘News 360’ will be the ideal show to bring forth all genres of news, giving viewers the entire day’s news wrap-up,” added Sardesai.
