Express 24/7 was an English language television news channel headquartered in Karachi, Pakistan. The channel was owned by the Lakson Group which also owns its sister channel Express News and newspaper Daily Express and The Express Tribune. Express 24/7 was the second English-language television channel to be established in Pakistan, with Dawn News being the first. After Dawn News shifted to Urdu broadcasts in February 2010, Express 24/7 remained the only 24-hour English-language news channel in Pakistan until its closure in November 2011. The Express 24/7 CEO, Sultan Lakhani, cited the dismal economic condition and insufficient number of advertisement as the main reasons behind the closure. With the shutdown of Express 24/7, the era of local English news channels in Pakistan came to an end. Subsequently, BBC News and CNN returned to being the only TV source for English news in Pakistan.[1]
