Senior journalist Arnab Goswami has resigned as the Editor-in Chief of Times Now. Goswami was not seen on his prime time show The Newshour in the past couple of days.

Sources said that he announced his resignation at an editorial meeting. Goswami resigned from the post as he wanted to start something on his own, said sources. The channel, however, is showing teasers of Newshours with the slug ‘Arnab is Back’.

According to Business Standard, Goswami might start a news channel with politician and entrepreneur Rajeev Chandrasekhar and American media baron Rupert Murdoch. It was also said that Goswami might join Fox News. However, Indianexpress.com could not verify the reports.

Goswami started his career at The Telegraph in Kolkata. Within a year, in 1995, he joined NDTV where he was one of the more prominent faces along with Vikram Chandra and Rajdeep Sardesai. He later joined Times Now as its Editor-in-Chief in 2006. He was known for bringing his own unique style of TV journalism into India. Often criticised for being judgmental on his news show, Arnab has a dedicated viewer base of people who love his direct interrogative style of debates, and also those who hate him.

Powered by Goswami’s high-volume NewsHour on primetime, Times Now has been able to sideline a lot of the older players in the English new space. This success had led to Arnab Goswami being promoted as President, News, of Times Now and ET Now.

Arnab is planning his own news venture, reports suggested. TheQuint.com reported that during his hour-long farewell speech he kept repeating that the “game has just begun”. Goswami made the announcement at the Times Now newsroom in Mumbai, with journalists from other centres joining in via video conference.

                        Some may say that he doesn't allow others to speak. By I say he asks questions without any hesitation or without caring what will be the consequences..we rarely see such journlist whi asks on behalf of all the indians.He is a hero in journalism. We miss u arnab.:(

                              If only he had allowed the guests on the show to also talk, he would be a very good editor/journalist. The show was about him, and not People want to know. It was about his opinions that People should know. TV Journalism is at a much higher pedestal from where he kept it.

                                          Any intellectual,esply. A journalist has to support the govt of the day in certain policies and action in the interest of nation...that does not mean the individual is supporting any political party or opposing

                                            He only speaks and don't have guts and patience to listen. Stooped watching him due to this site reason only Although most of the time he has valid topic but being an anchor one should not dictate his line of thinking.
