MUMBAI: Following his counterparts in the Network18 group, IBN Lokmat editor in chief Nikhil Wagle has also decided to part ways with the company.
Announcing the decision through Twitter, Wagle said, “Just resigned from IBN LOKMAT. Will continue journalism without fear or favour!”
On his decision, former IBN18 editor in chief Rajdeep Sardesai tweeted, “@waglenikhil salute you for building India's finest regional language channel.”
