Saral Jeevan, the first infotainment channel in Kannada, is set to further reinforce its identity by adding four news bulletins to its daily programs with the motto 'no hype and pure info.' The bulletins will be aired from February 19, coinciding with the occasion of the channel's second anniversary.
Saral Jeevan has been known for programs that focus on mythology, history, travel, and insights from Indian heritage and culture.
"Our approach is to present few comprehensive bulletins along with our niche content. The bulletins are broadly categorized as breakfast, lunch and dinner time news. While other news channels are busy with flash and breaking news of all kind, Saral Jeevan sticks to comprehensive bulletin format with a clear gap of 3-5 hours between each bulletin," says Raghunatha Reddy, Business Head of Saral Jeevan.
"We had a good content run of Ajji Helida Kathe (Grandmother Tales), History series and other programming inspired by our heritage and culture. Now is the time to strengthen 'info' area, hence the introduction of few bulletins. We are confident that the new blend of NEWS and programming will be liked by our viewers," says MS Raghavendra, editor of Saral Jeevan.
