Naya Pakistan, Naya Anchor: Shahzad Iqbal joins Geo News replaces Talat Hussain


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.
