Musical chairs: Exit Kamran Shahid, entrée Talat Hussain?

Shahid had not been hosting his regular 8pm show for the past two weeks with a temporary host filling in.


Web Desk July 27, 2012

Kamran Shahid, the host of Express News' prime time show Front Line, has switched over to DunyaTv, reported the media comment website JournalismPakistan.com on Friday.

Shahid had come under fire for a few of his shows especially one where he had invited Barrister Saif and Talal Bugti as guests via a phone in. The Barrister, who had been considered a right hand man of former dictator General Pervez Musharraf, went on an abusive tirade against the disgruntled Baloch leader, even threatening him with physical harm live on television with Kamran Shahid watching as a spectator.

Shahid had not been hosting his regular 8pm show for the past two weeks with a temporary host filling in.

Journalism Pakistan, in a second story, said that senior journalist and anchor Syed Talat Hussain has also made the move to Express from DawnNews, probably ushering in a prime time revamp.

Correction: The link provided in the story was earlier stated as a ".com.pk" domain. It has now been corrected to just ".com".
