Arup Ghosh & Shireen quit Sahara Samay; Prabhat Dabral is new Head

Arup Ghosh, Head-National Channel, Sahara Samay, and his colleague, Shireen Sethi, Head-NCR for the channel, quit the organization on Monday. Prabhat Dabral, who was heading the regional channels of Sahara Samay, has been appointed as the new Head of Sahara Samay Rashtriya.

Sports Editor Sandip Mishra and Business Editor Abhishek Kumar have also quit along with Ghose and Shireen.

Ghosh and Shireen have both been associated with Sahara Samay for almost three years. They were part of the conceptualization team and have also done the recruitment for the Sahara Samay team.

Speaking on his association with Sahara, Ghosh said, “We have gained a lot from our association with Sahara and are grateful to Sahara Shri Subroto Roy for the opportunity he gave us.” Ghosh did not divulge where he was headed, beyond saying that he and his team would “like to pursue other assignements”.

Ghosh has been a journalist for about 18 years and has served in leading national newspapers and television channels. He was with NDTV for six years, having joined it in 1995 as a journalist-cum-presenter. He quit NDTV along with Shireen and some other colleagues to form a TV production company called Network 1. Ghosh and Shireen became presenters of the programme 'Prime Time' on Zee News, before moving on to Sahara Samay where he played a key role in its launch.
