Arnab Goswami quits as editor-in-chief of Times Television Network

MUMBAI: He transformed prime time news as India’s most vocal news journalist and anchor. So, when the news emerged that Arnab Goswami had resigned from his post as the editor-in-chief of the Times Television Network, shock waves went through the news television industry.

Sources within the news network revealed that this morning’s editorial meeting turned out to be the occasion when Arnab announced his resignation. He had returned from a trip to the Maldives. The meeting - which had both the Delhi and Mumbai bureaus participating - went on for 45 minutes. Says a reporter who was present at the meeting: "We though it was an ordinary edit meeting. And then he dropped this bombshell."

Arnab went on to say that his game is really beginning now. Said he; "I have emotionally built this company. I am going to jump into a new pond. I have not heard back from the owners after I informed them about my departure..I don’t expect them to get back either. Integrity of news will keep me going and not the money. Content will be king. I will be back."

He is apparently slated to turn entrepreneur – something which has been talked about for at least a couple of years now, but which he has constantly denied.

No confirmation was forthcoming from either the Times Now management or Arnab at the time of writing.

Arnab, through his unique style of journalism, where he played judge, jury and executioner on issues and people, had during his tenure at Times Now managed to capture the imagination of the English-speaking classes. At one stage, he was known by his unique line: “The nation wants to know.”

His shows The News Hour Debate and Frankly Speaking with Arnab Goswami were amongst the highest watched on English news television. 1 November is likely to be the last time when viewers will watch him hosting his News Hour debate.
