After Goa News, the party capital of India is set to get its second 24/7 satellite channel World Link News. The channel will come under the parent company World Link News International which also plans to launch a national channel.

Senior journalist, Sachin Borker will head the news network as editor-in-chief and Suresh Kankonkar will be the executive editor of Goa channel. "We will launch the Goa regional channel in a month's time and the national one will take us more three months at least. The channel will focus on hardcore reporting on each and every aspect," informs Borker 

It is not only the Indian audience that the channel is targeting, "Apart from the entire country we want to reach out to Gulf territories also, where there are many Goan people residing. For India we have already done the deal with the leading DTH players and now we are talking terms with cable operators also. We will have Konkani, Marathi and Hindi bulletins in our channel," Borker adds.

The network will be using the license of IPT and the channels will be beamed from Intelsat 20 satellite.

If sources are to be believed then the Network is backed by an NRI who has pumped close to Rs 10 crore in the launch. Advertising will be the key revenue generator for the channel and the network will create a sales team for that. 

"We have hired a few journalists and we will hire more in the coming days. We are looking at a team mix of young and old. We will have bureaus across the country," Borker informs.
