Mumbai: Many have tried. Most have failed. But the Arnab Goswami-led Republic Network is not letting that get in the way of its ambition to go global. On 16 June, it announced on Twitter that it is expanding its expanding Republic internationally with R.Global, without revealing whether it would be a TV channel or an online service or a streaming service.

However, what it did say is that it is hiring more than 120 journos across the globe to “deliver world class content and investigation to our viewers. Arnab is personally committed to the expansion of Indian media in the global market. R. Global is a first step in that direction. With R. Global, Republic will take its international network to another level.”

The news service stated that it was going to hire 100 digital professionals across tech, content and product teams. The company disclosed that it has seen a 600 per cent digital growth and increase in traffic.

Additionally, it highlighted that “it is set to deliver a game changer product on air and online with an all-new look and feel with unmatchable content line up.”

And in true Arnab style it ended the thread by saying: “We are bigger, louder and fiercer! #RepublicIsTheNews and the people of India are on our side. With R. Global, a whole new look, unparalleled journalism, digital expansion and deep reportage, Republic is set to change the news. All over again.”
