Senior journalist Arnab Goswami has resigned as the Editor-in Chief of Times Now. Goswami was not seen on his prime time show The Newshour in the past couple of days. Sources said that he announced his resignation at an editorial meeting. Goswami resigned from the post as he wanted to start something on his own, said sources. The channel, however, is showing teasers of Newshours with the slug ‘Arnab is Back’.
According to Business Standard, Goswami might start a news channel with politician and entrepreneur Rajeev Chandrasekhar and American media baron Rupert Murdoch. It was also said that Goswami might join Fox News. However, Indianexpress.com could not verify the reports.
Goswami started his career at The Telegraph in Kolkata. Within a year, in 1995, he joined NDTV where he was one of the more prominent faces along with Vikram Chandra and Rajdeep Sardesai. He later joined Times Now as its Editor-in-Chief in 2006. He was known for bringing his own unique style of TV journalism into India. Often criticised for being judgmental on his news show, Arnab has a dedicated viewer base of people who love his direct interrogative style of debates, and also those who hate him.
