Not just that, CNN-IBN has been behind some of the most innovative and ground-breaking programming that speak of and celebrate the common man. Programmes such as Real Heroes, Citizen Journalist, and India Positive have not only been inspiring social initiatives, but also fine examples of a 360°degree view of news coverage.
Speaking on the occasion, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, CNN-IBN, IBN7 & IBN-Lokmat, said, “Seven years ago, we had a dream which has now become a reality. Reaching this milestone gives us a great sense of pride and self-belief that will inspire us to work even harder to keep the philosophy of ‘Whatever It Takes’ alive.”
