Geo Entertainment Network
Geo Television Network is a Pakistan based entertainment channel owned by Mir
Khalil Ur Rehman became official in October 2002. Geo Television Network is a
part of renowned newspaper publication “Jang Group”. The ideology behind the Geo
Television Network is “Geo Aur Jeenay Do.” The philosophy of the channel is to
excel in the field of electronic media and gain the position of top class
entertainment and news channel of Pakistan. Live freely and let others live too.
The concept was fresh and highly regarded by the general public when it
initially started off and now it is viral in Pakistan.
Geo News is not just a news channel it is a considered to be the Face of
Pakistan as it depicts the image of Pakistan on International forum. No other
Pakistani news channel is popular in international audience other than Geo News.
People love to listen and debate on the talk shows of Hamid Mir and Kamran Khan.
Whether it’s General Election 2013, updates on ongoing Operation Zarb e Azab,
Azadi March of Imran Khan, or Inqilab March of Dr. Tahir Ul Qadri; the people
are more interested in knowing how Kamran Khan or Hamid Mir evaluates it. What
is latest to gossip about? The trend has developed to follow every political
story prevailing in Pakistan. This nation needs to know whats trending on the
map of Pakistani politics and current affairs, which in my opinion has its
advantages and drawbacks simultaneously.
Since last few years Geo News faced serious allegations and accusations from
Government and Judiciary. If we recall the very first incident took place in
State of Emergency 2007 when the Musharraf government completely banned
broadcasting of Geo News. The programs Capital Talk and Meray Mutabiq were
banned by the Dubai government on special request from the Pakistan Government.
Geo News was again targeted in 2009 for vigorously promoting the 'Lawyers'
Movement' and the 'Long March' and constantly going against the running
government for several years. The recent incidents of attack on Geo’s senior
anchor Hamid Mir in Karachi changed the entire scenario of Pakistani media and
its image locally and internationally. The channel was highly criticized for
blaming and accusing Inter Services Intelligence and it’s Director General
Zaheer-ul-Islam for attempted assassination of Hamid Mir. This resulted in
suspension of Geo News License by PEMRA for 15 days.
Despite the controversies the channels regained its popularity in the electronic
media, being the largest channel in Pakistan. According to Gallup Pakistan, Geo
News ranked second in the list of Top 20 channels in terms of viewership in 2013
(data: Jan – June 2013). It gained popularity and public support due to its
highly professional news channel, anchors, talk shows, and debate. People prefer
to watch Geo News for any Breaking News instead of BBC or CNN. People have faith
on Geo News as it has always delivered them true information of current affairs,

most trusted news channel TV not only in Pakistan but all over the world.
