Ever since Arnab Goswami announced his venture Republic TV in December last year, he has constantly been in the news, be it for the aggressive digital strategy or even Goswami’s high-powered public speaking appearances at Industry forums and Youth campuses.
Goswami, Co-founder and Managing Director of Republic TV, again made news last week when he received a legal threat from a leading media group, to which he has even responded openly on Republic TV’s Facebook page.
Goswami shared with his fans that the media group is threatening him with imprisonment if he ever uses the phrase ‘Nation Wants to Know’. He reassured his fans that the threat of imprisonment will not deter him and his team at Republic TV.
And now, adding another twist to this tale, Republic TV is said to have launched an Outdoor campaign using the very phrase, ‘The Nation Wants to Know’. Things might have not been as interesting as they are now as this outdoor hoarding declaring, The Nation Still Wants to Know’ is clearly seen outside The Times of India office in Hyderabad. Whilst there was no confirmation of more such hoardings, people in the know indicate that there will be a full-fledged outdoor campaign of a similar tone. As to whether the location will be similar as it stands in Hyderabad but in different cities across the nation, we will know soon.
