As the digital age fuels a massive change across our country, CNN-IBN is all set to take the leap with its flagship initiative, ‘The Citizen Journalist Show’, which will now be seen as ‘CJ+’, the common man’s fight against injustice in an all-new, digital and social media powered format.
Starting August 1, 2015, ‘CJ+’ will hit the screens in an all new-avatar, set to connect with its viewers digitally. With this new format, CNN-IBN will expand its platform for the common man to voice his thoughts and concerns through easily accessible digital tools.
Although, the story ideas and storytelling remain intact, this time the show will use social media platforms like video blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Hangouts and Skype to enhance its story telling techniques. To complement the show, a refreshed website will also be launched, further enriching audience experience.
Speaking about the show, Radhakrishnan Nair, Managing Editor, CNN-IBN, said, “The whole objective behind ‘CJ+’ is to empower the audience and give them a bigger stage to participate in the whole news gathering system and fight for their rights. We are grateful to work on such an innovative programme and hope that we continue receiving an overwhelming response from the audience.”
Starting August 1, ‘CJ+’ will air on Saturdays at 1.30 pm and 9.30 pm and on Sundays at 5.30 pm and 10.30 pm on CNN-IBN.
