Express Media Group launches English news channel today

Pakistan Press Foundation

Express Media Group has added a new English news channel to its bouquet of offerings – Tribune 24/7 – which launches today.

The channel is the latest venture of Express Media Group, which publishes Daily Express simultaneously from eleven cities, Sindh Express from two cities and The Express Tribune from Karachi, Lahore & Islamabad. The Group already broadcasts Express News, the largest and most credible news channel in Pakistan, and Express Entertainment.

Thus, Tribune 24/7 has access to the vast news resources of its print and television platforms to provide you with reliable and accurate reporting in real time.
Tribune 24/7 is backed by the first digital newsroom of Pakistan, where a dedicated team of professionals produces content for our print and digital platforms.

The need for an independent English news channel in Pakistan has never been greater. At a time of great global change at every level – political, social, demographic and technological – Pakistan has to find its rightful place in the new order, and it has to communicate with the world in the language of the world.

Tribune 24/7 will take Pakistan to the world and bring the world to Pakistan with conviction and clarity of purpose. It will present Pakistan’s perspective and show the world what the people have to say, not just what the governments have to say.

It is a rule of unbiased journalism that every story has two sides, and both sides must be conveyed without any prejudice. This has been the policy of all the media platforms of the Express Media group, and this will be the policy of Tribune 24/7.

But above all, we are very clear about our identity as a Pakistani channel. Our priorities lie with our fellow citizens and what we believe to be the inherent interest of this great nation. We will point out the wrongs in society. We will take the mighty to task and we will hold governments accountable for the actions. But on top of this all, we will stand up for our country.
