It was in this background that Mr. Zulfiqar Ahmed Rahat, the company's CEO, thought of setting up a news network worthy of credibility at home as well as in the foreign world. Mr. Rahat, who has been a journalist in his own right and now Chief Executive officer, initiated this project.
CEO's primary concern was to build a highly professional team of reputable journalists, and marry it with state-of-the-art technology. Following these objectives, each journalist was selected on merit to ensure maintaining high journalistic values and each equipment was specially designed to cater to the modern day needs. Whether we are serving broadcasters, publishers, brands, agencies, or direct to consumers, Hotline provides award-winning coverage of the day’s most important topics, including: business, finance, politics, sports, entertainment, technology, health, environment, and much more.
