After Talat Hussain’s exit from Geo News, there is confirmed news that Samaa’s Shahzad Iqbal will be replacing him on Geo News. Shahzad Iqbal is a talented and aggressive anchor of Samaa, though he does lack when comparing his ratings with Talats’.
Shahzad Iqbal is a long time anchor of Samaa and conducts his show at the 10 pm slot. There was unconfirmed news of Shahzad leaving the channel a few months ago, but considering his close association with Samaa’s chariman, the news wasn’t given the proper weight-age.
Shahzad will be doing a prime time show at 8 pm on the weekends competing with Maalick of 92 News and Dr. Danish of 24 as his main competitors, which will prove to be a good move for the anchor.
Shahzad Iqbal hosted Samaa’s talk show Awaz, and has an experience of eight years in the media industry. He is a business and marketing graduate who started as an economic and financial analyst on different talk shows.
Mediabites wishes him the best of luck for his new job at Geo News.
