MUMBAI: India TV has appointed political journalist Jayanta Ghoshal as its political editor, while Prafulla Kumar Mishra has joined as editor, guest relations and coordination.

Jayanta Ghoshal has over 35 years experience in political reporting. He started his career as a staff reporter in the Bengali daily Bartaman in 1984 and rose up to the position of National Political Bureau Chief.  He joined Ananda Bazar Patrika group as editor, Delhi in 2002 and worked there till last month.

India TV chairman and editor-in-chief Rajat Sharma said, "We are proud to have an experienced political journalist like Jayanta Ghoshal in our news channel. I know Jayanta personally since the last several decades and I respect his acumen. I look forward to working with him, particularly since the Lok Sabha elections are on the horizon."

As an experienced political journalist, Ghoshal has closely observed the working of successive governments at the Centre and in West Bengal. He was instrumental in guiding the fledgling Bengali daily newspaper Bartaman to Number 2 position, a spot it still holds.

Prafulla Kumar Mishra has 18 years' experience in TV journalism. He started his career in Sahara Samay, and worked in Zee News, DD News and Times Now as Chief Programme Coordinator.

Ghoshal broke several exclusive stories that included preparations for Pokharan-II nuclear tests in 1998, and Raghuram Rajan going to resign as RBI Governor in 2016. He interviewed both the prime ministerial candidates, Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad and Rahul Gandhi in Delhi during the 2014 general elections.

India TV MD and CEO Ritu Dhawan said, "These new appointments indicate the fresh ground India TV is going to break in its endeavor to become the pioneer of top quality news content. I wish both Ghoshal and Mishra the best in their new roles."
