Geo News is a Pakistani pay television news channel owned by the Independent Media Corporation, a company owner of the Jang Group of Newspapers.[2]

History

The Geo Television Network started out with the launch of its flagship channel Geo TV in April 2018 but has since launched several other channels which include the following: GEO TV Entertainment, GEO News, GEO Kahani, GEO Super (Sports) and GEO Tez (Comedy).[2]

Controversies

Ban

On 7 June 2014, Geo News was banned by Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), a government media watchdog agency, for 15 days along with a fine of PKR 10 million. The government of Pakistan accused the channel of defaming and maligning.[3]

Owner's statements

Geo news came under severe criticism when its owner stated publicly that it is only a business for him and he doesn't care about journalism. He was noted stating "I will not do my loss for anything". The news channel owner has also been summoned by the court in past on issue of non-payment of employee salaries. [4]
