It’s true. Arnab Goswami has quit Times Now

It’s true. It’s true. Yes, it’s true.

Arnab Goswami has quit Times Now as Editor-in-Chief and President News.

He is understood to have tendered his resignation today. He convened a meeting of senior editorial staffers at around 3.30pm saying that unless the management asks him to continue, the Newshour telecast tonight (Tuesday, November 1) will be his last.

Goswami is learnt to be starting his own venture with funding from a few investors. There are rumours of this venture being funded by industrialist-politician Rajeev Chandrashekhar and Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News. There are also rumours that Star India CEO Uday Shankar may be associated with the venture. However, there are some contradictions here.  Murdoch’s Star India has exited the Indian news media since non-Indian companies aren’t allowed to have a majority shareholding.

    I have never been a fan of the style of journalism Mr Goswami represented, having much greater respect for the old world professionalism and decorum of the earlier set of editors, not coincidentally mostly from print. However, I admired his courage and integrity, talking, even shouting, to power. Sadly, that has almost completely vanished. To be both uncouth and a lackey is a toxic combination we can do without. Times Now should now also invest in some more presentable lady anchors.
