'Hum Toh Poochenge' is now the channel's flagship show, hosted by IBN7's deputy managing editor, Sumit Awasthi. The show aims to provide viewers with an "incomparable" insight on the latest happenings from around the country. It focusses on the two biggest 'Topics of the Day' - it features an intense debate for half-an-hour on each topic with those at the centre of the news that is being showcased.

The channel will also be inviting viewers to give their views/questions using various touch points like Twitter, Facebook, SMS and the channel's website IBNKhabar, to ensure that the show is truly interactive.

'India 9 Baje', 'Danaadan' and 'Criminal' are the other tent-pole properties of the channel during prime time which will be seen in a new avatar - fresh graphics, de-cluttered packaging and high levels of energy that will make for engaging and compelling viewing.

The channel believes that these revamped shows, with increased interactivity and engaging packaging, will resonate tremendously with the audiences.
