Since the dawn of the new century, Media Genius, Mr. Aftab Iqbal has sparked the transformation of Pakistani comical talk shows. His unprecedented success of launching and stabilizing top rating-puller talks shows i.e. Hasb-e-Haal, Khabarnaak, Khabardar in a fierce market, have triggered the confidence in Mr. Aftab Iqbal to prove himself once again, now as CEO of Aap Media Group. The time has come to add another name to his remarkable portfolio: ‘Aap News’ a channel created with a supreme work ethic will be at your fingertips very soon. Yesterday there was a ‘soft’ launch of the channel and the ribbon cutting was done by veteran poet and columnist, Mr. Zafar Iqbal.
AAP Media Group bringing two News Channel in Pakistan. AAP NEWS is a urdu based news channel and INDUS NEWS NETWORK an English Language news channel for local and international audience; also planning to launch a kids base channel and entertainment channel very soon.
Aftab Iqbal has done wonders with ratings at Dunya News, Geo News and Express News under three different portfolios of programs. His most creative production, ‘Hasb-e-Haal’ at Dunya is regarded as the most successful talk show at 11:00 pm slot in the history of programming in Pakistan. This also set a bench work for other channels to follow with some more promising productions but were failed to meet the standards set by Aftab Iqbal.
Furthermore Aftab Iqbal is playing a vital role in the launch of Aap News (Urdu) and Indus News (English) as part of the launch team and as its CEO; his myriad efforts again bringing positive results within a short span of time. Junaid Iqbal is also playing a key role to launch Aap News & Indus News as MD, Aap Group and mainly the back-bone of this new media group. Veteran journalist Najam Sethi has also joined the group as their President and will also be doing shows as an anchor on Aap News as well as on Indus News.
