Premanjita Chowdhury: The talk show host with panache
Unlike many talk show hosts, Premanjita has a direct, non-confrontational approach. Her style is characteristically frankand encouraging.
Premanjita started her career in 2004, when she hosted a Valentine's Day special entertainment programme on NTV Bangla as a guest anchor and earned appreciation in the bargain.
She hosted a popular evening talk show titled Shubho Shandha, one of the longest running shows on NTV Bangla. Throughout her career she has interviewed many of the leading personalities. Among her most famous interviewees were Shamim Azad, Tarik Anam Khan, Lucky Enam, Dr Enamul Huque, Khaled Khan, Dr Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, Sadya Afreen Mallick and many others. In all, she claims that she conducted over 20 interviews over the course of her career. Premanjita has eventually arrived at her current position as a news anchor and caster.
Premanjita grew up in Chittagong. After completing her HSC, she came to Dhaka. Currently, she is studying at the Department of Public Administration, Dhaka University. Although Chittagong is her hometown, the most formative years of her life have been spent in Dhaka.
Talking about her source of inspiration, she says, "I have always been inspired by my family and have received a lot of encouragement from them. My father, in particular, has been a source of strength for me. His opinions are important to me and he is a huge influence in my life."

The NTV/RTV office building in Dhaka was badly damaged by fire. Apparently much of their broadcast equipment was affected and so NTV/RTV is no longer able to broadcast on satellite, cable nor internet. We wish our friends at NTV/RTV our very best at getting back up to service and we are working on a plan to re-establish their internet broadcast with JumpTV.
In the mean time, we would like to show our appreciation for people’s support by extending to you a free month’s subscription to any Bangla channel of viewer’s choice, in addition, we have added Channel i and Banglavision to subscribers My Channels page free for a month. So that’s three channels free for a month we are extending to the subscriber’s in light of this unusual situation.
