Waqt News is a Pakistani news channel owned by Nawa-i-Waqt media group founded by Hameed Nizami. It was launched in early 2007 in Pakistan. Nawa-i-Waqt is considered to be one of the most vocal media groups in Pakistan. This group has a long history for being critical of the Federal Government.
Waqt News is a proud new member of the Nawa-i-Waqt group.
Editorially independent and backed by the largest news correspondent network in Pakistan, Waqt News and its journalists are the flag bearers of a free press and media in Pakistan. Independent of partisan interests, it is dedicated to playing a leading role and providing a real and effective contribution to the formation of an informed democracy.
The news it airs has its value in journalistic leadership, its enthusiasm for knowledge building and for the part it plays in promoting Pakistan’s culture.
The addition of Waqt News to the Nawa-i-Waqt group is not just about changes in technology, it is not just about the explosion of choice across the media. It’s about communities undergoing rapid change, about social and economic relationships fracturing and re-forming in new and different ways. It’s about Pakistan itself changing, about very different attitudes in an atmosphere where sensationalism is often mistaken for journalism. It’s about the need for a trusted name in broadcast journalism.
