Exactly a month after his last show on Times Now, senior journalist Arnab Goswami has announced that his new venture would be called Republic. Goswami had resigned from Times Now on November 1. Rahul Shivshankar has since taken over as Editor In Chief of the news channel.

Reports suggest the channel will start airing before the crucial Uttar Pradesh elections in the first quarter of 2017.

Goswami shot to fame for his daily prime time debate show ‘The News Hour’ that is reported to bring in over 60 per cent revenue for the news channel and has a dedicated audience base across the country. He also conducts detailed interviews with politicians, sportspersons and celebrities on ‘Frankly Speaking’. Because of Goswami’s primetime appearance, 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.

He resigned after working at the top for 10 years at Times Now. 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.
