Geo Tez

Geo, a subsidiary of Jang Group of Newspapers, recently inaugurated yet another Urdu news channel ‘Geo Tez’. Previously on-aired as ‘Geo English’, its name was altered along with its medium of language.

Means

In English the word ‘Tez’ means ‘Fast’. With its motto of providing news to its viewers 24/7, Geo Tez broadcasts fresh headlines after every fifteen minutes. Thus, the channel has claimed itself to be the first ever Pakistani headline news channel.

Introduced

Introduced in the crucial time of Pakistani elections 2013, the channel tends to deliver news reports of all sorts from all over the globe. While all the other channels are busy showing programs and dramas, Geo Tez delivers four headlines daily to its viewer on hourly basis. It is differentiated from its flagship ‘ Geo News’ by focusing only on news bulletins and not airing any infotainment programs. However, the human resource will be alike for both the channels. With an overabundance of news networks, it is yet to see that how fast Geo Tez will be in winning the hearts of the viewers. With its launch, the Media News industry will undoubtedly see a revolution, as other big names in the business will supposedly follow the league and unveil such news platforms.[2] Pakistan’s First Headline News Channel-The fast and speedy “Geo Tez”

Career

Shakil founded Geo TV in May 2002. In the late 1990s, during Nawaz Sharif's second term as Prime Minister, Shakil was first asked by Sharif's government to dismiss some of the staff members of the Jang Group.
