He is a pit of wit and a man of many talents. A little birdy is said to whisper covert information that is relished across satellite waves. Najam Sethi is one of the most celebrated talk show hosts of this country who has an ability to connect to the masses through his humour and boisterousness. This dynamic personality has had an association with journalism, politics and even cricket but with tv hosting he seems to have hit a sixer. He is a man of many talents and a pandora’s box of surprises; an award winning journalist, the editor in chief of a well known political weekly and now a leading talk show host. The show has garnered a huge fan following largely owing to the antics of its host. Mr Sethi is witty and provocative and relays interesting newsbytes through a mischievous smile. His predictions and analysis are relayed with a dash of humour and yet they never lose their robust political examination. The show therefore almost is never dull. But of late, Sethi has faced criticism over his handling of the interim post at the Pakistan Cricket Board. Some say he has used the platform of GE TV to fight his personal Cricketing battles.

Imran Khan is one of those rare politicians that seem to only invoke extreme, diametrically opposite reactions. There is simply no middle ground with the former cricketer, you either love him unconditionally, or hate everything he stands for. Either way, Imran Khan has undeniably changed the face of Pakistani politics. From a fiery election campaign […]
To say that Malala Yousafzai won a few awards in 2013 would be kind of like saying the bullet merely scratched her head. From the Simone de Beauvoir prize in January to the nomination for the Nobel Peace prize in March, and from being selected as one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in […]
Another favorite in the category of eloquent and poised journalists who has always maintained decorum required of a talk show host. He has a characteristic restrained demeanor, which is a breath of fresh air considering the excess of firebrand anchors. He comes well prepared with an objective analysis and gives solid conclusions to his shows. […]
She is a very senior journalist whose plethora of experience makes her a credible talk shows host whose opinion matters. She has been known to take a courageous stand on contentious issues – for instance she was one of the few anchors who had a discussion on the blasphemy law and Salman Taseer’s assassination at […]
