AAJ NEWS was initially started in March 23, 2005 by the Business Recorder Group. The Business Recorder Group is one of the most prominent media conglomerates in Pakistan.
As Aaj TV is the only Television network to have an Earth Station, it provides flexibility and control in responding to local and international events. AAJ TV caters to all tastes by providing four programming features in the form of News, Current Affairs, Entertainment and Infotainment.
With a vast amount of experience with the Business Recorder Group, AAJ TV provides round the clock news coverage from around the world in collaboration with their partner news sources in more than 100 countries.
Combining news reporting with analytical strengths provided by the respected social and political commentators in Pakistan, accounts for in depth and precise Current Affairs programs.
One of the major achievements in entertainment programming is its one of its kind "The late night show with Begum Nawazish Ali aired on Saturday every week. The show is based on the idea of a male host in disguise of a rich feminist portraying a page-3 elite of the country. The host takes interviews of some very prominent figures from within country talking broadly about the socio-economic issues of the nation.
Another popular show is a program called the 4 Man Show. It is a show with 4 'anchors' (hence the title) giving the news and taking interviews with 'political leaders' (actors with cheap make-up). However it is deeply immersed in comedy and political satire and is a 'loose cannon' meaning no one is immune (sometimes even themselves).
On April 22, 2007 The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) has served a show-cause notice on Aaj TV, for airing news, talk shows and other programmes on the current judicial crisis and threatened it with closure.
In notice, it said that the TV channel had violated the Pemra Ordinance in its news, talk shows and programmes on an issue pending with the Supreme Judicial Council.
The notice said that the channel had also failed to produce a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the external publicity wing of the ministry of information and broadcasting which was required for the processing of short-term uplinking licence. On 23 March 2009,Aaj news has been Convrted In to 24hr news channel.
