Firstpost, an Indian news website owned by Network18 Group of Reliance Industries, has crossed 2 million subscribers on its YouTube channel. A few months ago, it was unknown to most of the people but with the launch of a new show ‘Vantage‘ by Palki Sharma Upadhyay, managing editor at Firstpost, it has made headlines all over the world.
Palki Sharma was earlier associated with WION (World is One News) where she became a well-known face for her amazing presentation of news, analysis of geopolitics and her simple yet thought-provoking explanatory videos.
In 2022, she resigned from WION and soon got associated with Firstpost, a news website owned by Network18 Media.
On 26 January 2023, a new show ‘Vantage with Palki Sharma‘ premiered on the YouTube channel of Firstpost which has now become a flagship show on geopolitics and global news.
At that time, Firstpost had less than 200K subscribers and today just after seven months of the premiere of Palki Sharma’s new show Vantage, its YouTube channel has crossed 2 Million subscribers.
In addition to Vantage, she has now started two other shows also, Between the Lines and Flashback with Palki Sharma. The Firstpost team is also working hard putting well-researched content and shows regarding world affairs and global headlines.
Palki Sharma Upadhyay has now become the face of Firstpost providing a platform for the Indian perspective on global affairs and geopolitics. She is making headlines all over the world by taking our stories in our hands, presenting in our style and not being dictated by the global media.
Her honest conversations with the viewers has established Palki as a credible journalist in the global affairs. “Accuracy is something that we put a premium on, and we try to double-check the information that we have. We have a solid research team, and where we do not have control ourselves, we attribute it,” said Sharma in an interview with Storyboard18.
“Additionally, our approach is research-driven, with a commitment to accuracy. We recognise the importance of speed, but we always strive to strike a balance between timeliness and precision.” And this is the reason why people love the content of Palki Sharma and she is praised all over the Internet.
Firstpost is now all set to launch more new shows; a sports show is almost confirmed ahead of the Cricket World Cup. Also the election season is soon coming, and Palki Sharma is ready for the coverage of elections. While the coverage will be catering to the Indian audience but it will also be assisting the global audience in making sense of the elections going to happen in the world’s largest democracy.
