Arnab Goswami’s news venture to be called ‘Republic’
MUMBAI: Popular news anchor and journalist Arnab Goswami’s venture is taking shape.
Revealing the name of his new TV and digital venture, Goswami has said that his new venture will be called ‘Republic’.
“My venture is called ‘Republic’; I seek the support of the people of India,” Goswami told The News Minute.
He also told the news portal that he will share details of his news venture after a few weeks.
Speculation is rife that Goswami is teaming up with Bengaluru-based entrepreneur Rajeev Chandrashekhar for his new venture. There is also buzz that Rupert Mursoch’s 21st Century Fox could also be a part of this venture.
According to regulation, the foreign direct investment (FDI) in TV news is capped at 49% while the remaining shareholding should be with a single Indian shareholder.
Goswami had quit Times Network as president of news and Times Now editor-in-chief on 1 November.
He has been replaced with Rahul Shivshankar as chief editor. Shivshankar is joining the channel from NewsX.
