Senior journalist Rahul Shivshankar is expected to replace former Newshour anchor Arnab Goswami, sources on Monday said.
Arnab Goswami had resigned as the Editor-in Chief of Times Now in November first week. Rahul Shivshankar joined NewsX in September 2013 as Managing Editor and was later elevated as Editor-in-Chief a year later.
Shivshankar has been instrumental in redefining the approach of NewsX to daily news coverage and anchors the channel’s flagship primetime shows ‘Nation@9:00pm’ and ‘India Debates’ on weekdays.
In a career spanning almost 20 years, he has served as Executive Editor of Headlines Today (TV Today Network) and as Senior Editor of Times Now.
Apart from writing several comment pieces on current affairs, Shivshankar extensively documented the attack on Nariman House in Mumbai on November 26, 2008 in an anthology of hard-hitting investigative narratives published by Roli Books.
