Aaj Tak back as No. 1 Hindi news channel in Week 43

MUMBAI: The No. 1 position in the Hindi news genre is turning out to be a game of musical chairs of sorts between Aaj Tak and India TV as the former has once again taken the top slot in Week 43 of BARC’s all-India ratings. In the previous week, India TV had replaced Aaj Tak as the No. 1 channel.

In the week under review, India TV was relegated to the second slot. Apart from top two, the pecking order remained unchanged with ABP News, News Nation and Zee News taking the remaining three slots in that order. The top five Hindi news channels saw a spike in viewership.
