Take over of BOL Network[edit]

BOL Network and its defunct BOL News channel were the subject of an attempted takeover in August 2015 by ARY Digital Network's CEO Salman Iqbal, who said that the decision was taken with the view to provide career protection to the media industry and its workers.[2] However, on September 30, 2015, it was announced that the deal between the owners of BOL and ARY had fallen through.[3]
