Talat Hussain joins Express media group

talat-hussain

Islamabad: Veteran journalist and renowned anchorperson Syed Talat Hussain has switched to Express media group from Dawn TV, Express TV management sources confirm.

Talat Hussain will be hosting a current affairs show and writing regularly for various publications of the group.

Hussain will be hosting a primetime show from September 1 in lieu of Kamran Shahid, who was previously the host of Front Line on Express News.

Shahid received widespread criticism for a few of his shows, particularly the one in which he invited Barrister Saif and Talal Bugti as guests via a phone in.

The Barrister, who was considered a close aide of former dictator General Pervez Musharraf, went on an abusive tirade against the disgruntled Baloch leader, even threatening him with physical harm live on television with Kamran Shahid watching as a spectator.

Shahid had not been hosting his regular 8pm show for the past two weeks with a temporary host filling in.

    I had more respect for dawn for not being invloved in any controvercy
    but regardless Talaat has every right to choose whichever channel he wants to work with, Financial reasons or not.

    My only expectation is that you continue with the kind of work you are doing, Exceptional.

    Good aspect is that express is more popular than dawn I guess, so your sane voice would reach out to more people.

    This is his own choice but we will chase him there too. I follow him since he was in PTV. Whatever the Express policy be but I firmly believe they can not force Talaat for angling in his program. Insha Allah his program will be fair and unbiased every where.

    I concur with Nidas comments above, dawns more ‘decent’ style and reputation suited Talat more, but he has every right to choose where he goes , and hopefully he will not compromise on his integrity and his sane voice will reach out to more people.

    Talat sb u r one of my favorite personality.I requested you to please make a program me on the issues of ptcl employees.Now ptcl/Atesalat launched 2nd vss to its employees on the basis of pay scale 2004 where as according to the PTCL act 1996 all the benefits allowed by the federal Govt will be applicable on the ptcl employees appointed before 1996 but the company totally out of control.New pay scale which was announced by the Govt not given to them.12% shares not given to the employee despite of same have already given to all the Govt companies.The installment to be paid by the aitesalt perhaps not paid.

    Good luck to you Talat, you have right to choose whom you want to stay with, I must say “Moving from one institution to another” is double edge weapon, so get ready for criticism as well as appreciation.

    There were lots of occasions when Talat Sir, openly criticized Dawn News for following specific agenda and promoting content not in national interest.. Programs on Rajesh Khana and Indian content in news reports are the recent examples he highlighted in his shows… Since he never compromised his credibility in his programs and never did programs to please the channel’s owner I am sure he would follow the same in Express News. He is a great addition to the media house and hopes he will come up in a more vibrant way…. And people don’t forget how he has always stood up for his principles!!!

    Good Luck Sir Talat!!!

    Sound strange…. We could see explanation regarding Kamran Shahid on Talats page that why he has to leave Express news,but why not Talat explanation to leave Dawn news.
    I guess kamran is doing more or less good job.Talat ought not to quit Dawn news unless or until give any reasonable logic to his viewers.
    Kindly if you take on Express.be conscious of Title and sub-title of the show (because the very impression ought not to go that Talat is trying hijacking kamrans show).

    One thing we need to understand here is that a TV channel is merely a platform and an anchor joining a tv channel does not mean that he is joining the channel on their terms and their line…..In fact, nowadays it is the channel that has to fulfill the demands of anchor and provide him with certain guarantees…..so whether it was dawn or now it is express, doesn’t matter much as long as the content of the program remains the same……

    Wish u best of luck but Dawn was better than Express……if you wanna jump may be try to reach Dunya News…….but for us more important is content of your program and analysis which we firmly believe will not be affected…..
