It’s now final. After many rumours doing the rounds including one where he was to join NewsX, we have now received a mail from the India Today group announcing the appointment of senior journalist and founder and editor-in-chief of IBN18 Network Rajdeep Sardesai as Consulting Editor.


Welcoming him to the group, India Today group Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Aroon Purie said, “Rajdeep has been an asset to whichever team he has belonged to, including the cricketing ones. Great to have him with us. I know he will hit the ball out of the park for Team India Today.”


Mr Sardesai started his television career in 1994 and was a founding member of NDTV and, subsequently, CNN-IBN. Prior to television, he worked with The Times of India for six years and was the City Editor of its Mumbai edition. He served as the Editor-in-Chief of IBN18 Network, including CNN-IBN, IBN-7 and IBN-Lokmat for the last nine years. He has just finished his first book based on the historic 2014 elections. Mr Sardesai has won several national and international awards for journalism, including the Padma Shri in 2008. He has also been President of the Editors Guild of India and was chosen a Global leader for tomorrow by the World Economic Forum in 2000.
