Founded in 1998, ABP News was formerly known as Star News but changed to its current name after the acquisition of Star News by the ABP group. It has been one of the biggest news channels in the country with more than 200 million gross viewership in most of its weeks.
Furthermore, it was the first bilingual channel (presenting in both Hindi and English). Situated in Noida, ABP news offers a variety of programs and is thus able to garner and reach out to such a wide audience.
With strong female and male lead anchors, the ABP News channel has covered all fronts and thus seems like a good choice for a news channel overall.
Due to these highlights, ABP News has been able to get a BARC TRP of 31,13,82,000 weekly impressions and is considered one of the top channels in India. As a Centre-Right News Channel, ABP news provides a much balanced account of information and is often viewed as a trusted channel.
