INX News ropes in Arup Ghosh as Newsroom Head; Editor-in-Chief to be named soon

INX News Pvt Ltd has appointed Arup Ghosh as its Newsroom Head. Prior to joining INX News, Ghosh was running a consultancy firm called Network 1 Media Consultancy, which launched an Asian community channel in the US called STV.

With over 25 years’ experience in print and TV journalism, Ghosh has held senior positions at television news companies, including NDTV, Sahara Samay and Channel 7. Prior to that, he spent 13 years working for the leading newspapers of the country, including The Times of India, Hindustan Times and The Statesman.

Indrani Mukerjea, Chairperson, INX News, said, “I am delighted to welcome Arup to the INX family as the Newsroom Head, and I am sure he will add immense value to the company. We will also shortly announce the appointment of our Editor-in-Chief.”

Ghosh said, “I really look forward to working with the team at INX. This is the perfect time in the industry to raise the bar where the English news genre is concerned, and I am very happy to be a part of the team who are committed to doing this.”

Ghosh’s career in television began in 1995 with NDTV, where he worked on shows such as ‘News Tonight’ (for DD) and ‘Index’ (for Zee), and subsequently anchored news bulletins on the premier breakfast show ‘Good Morning India’ on Star Plus.

As part of the senior core team that launched Star News in India, Ghosh worked for the channel as an anchor and special correspondent (politics) for over six years.

As Channel Head of Sahara Samay Rashtriya, Ghosh launched the national channel and provided the blueprint and support base for the launch of four other regional news channels by the Sahara group.

After Sahara, Ghosh moved to Channel 7 as Director-News (Channel Head), to launch the 24-hour news channel for the Dainik Jagran Group. This channel was launched in four months, one of the fastest launches ever in India, with programming that spanned crime, sports and entertainment shows. Ghosh has also been associated with Zee News as a presenter for a current affairs show besides the 2001 Assembly elections.
