MUMBAI: A month after she submitted her official resignation at CNN-IBN, the former deputy editor of the channel Sagarika Ghose is all set to enter the field of print journalism. Ghose will soon join Times of India as its new consulting editor.
Highly placed sources from the publication have confirmed the news that she will be joining later this month. She had started her career with Times of India in 1991. Since then she has worked at several publications including Outlook and The Indian Express before moving on to CNN-IBN along with husband and IBN18 editor in chief Rajdeep Sardesai.
Ghose had also received offers from the India Today group but it seems like she has decided to go with the leading daily of the country.
In the message that she sent out just after her resignation, Ghose had said that she was leaving to try her hand at something "a little more challenging and creative, explore new vistas in reportage and commentary after almost a quarter of a century in journalism, among them 9 fabulous years at CNN-IBN."
Both Ghose and Sardesai had gone on a month long leave just after Reliance Industries’ acquired Network 18 in late May and within a span of a few days, both of them resigned from the company.
