QW Naqvi bids adieu to TV Today

MUMBAI: Veteran journalist has decided to bid adieu to TV Today Network where he was working as news director.

Naqvi, 58, had rejoined TV Today Network in 2004 February and was responsible for successfully launching Tez and Dilli Aaj Tak.

"I have decided to take retirement from the company, my last day at TV Today is 31 May," Naqvi told

Queried about his future plans, Naqvi said he hasn‘t decided anything yet.

Naqvi has straddled the world of print and television media for the last 30 years bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to bear through his grasp and understanding of news. Starting as a trainee journalist with the Nav Bharat Times Mumbai, he later moved to Nav Bharat Times Lucknow.

By the mid-eighties, he had moved to Kolkata as the Chief Reporter in the Hindi weekly Ravivaar, covering the north-east extensively. A year later he was part of the core team that launched a new product Chauthi Duniya.

In the late eighties, he returned to Nav Bharat Times in Lucknow and by 1993, he joined Nav Bharat Times Jaipur as Editorial Head. In June 1995, he joined TV Today Network as Associate Editor and he was the one who proposed the name Aaj Tak which has since become a generic name for news television in India.

As a reporter, he has done several landmark stories, widely travelling across the country and working in different and diverse socio-economic and geographical landscapes, such as Kolkata, Lucknow, Delhi, Mumbai and Jaipur. He has worked with three of the largest media houses of the country - Bennett Coleman, Anand Bazar Patrika and Living Media Group.
