According to sources Jaag TV will shut down it transmission in the next few days and will be re-launched after rebranding as G News Network (GNN). The date for relaunch has been decided as 14th August which is celebrated as Independence Day in Pakistan

As we reported earlier that in 2016 the channel was purchased by Gourmet which is a famous food company in Pakistan. The deal was done between Samaa TV & Gourmet after multiple failed attempts by management of Samaa TV to increase the viewership of the channel.

Samaa TV purchased the channel as CNBC Pakistan and attempted to turn it into a profitable channel but after failure decided to sell it. Owners of Gourmet foods were planning to launch a channel from their hub Lahore when they decided to purchase Jaag TV.

It is expected that the channel will be re-launched from Lahore on Independence Day with the same team. What will happen to their staff in Karachi is still not known and employees fear that they might lose their job.

27 years ago Gourmet started as a food bakery from Lahore and soon it became the biggest food network with outlets all over Punjab. It has more than 100 outlets in Lahore alone which signifies how successful it has been in the provincial capital.
