CNN-News18's Sanjeeb Mukherjea joins NewsX as senior editor

Former Network18 cricket editor Sanjeeb Mukherjea has joined Kartikeya Sharma’s ITV Network. “I have joined NewsX as a senior editor,” Mukherjea told exchange4media. At the English-language news channel, he will be “spearheading the sports coverage” besides working on a prime time news show which is still in the works. Going on air for the first time on NewsX, Mukherjea interviewed Supreme Court advocate Harish Salve on April 19 in relation to the union cabinet’s decision of banning ministers from using red beacon vehicles.   

On March 31, Mukherjea concluded his 12-year-long-journey at CNN-News18 alongside colleagues such as Smitha Nair, Karma Paljor and Roshan Tamang. Exchange4media had earlier reported that he was in talks with several television networks in the hunt of an amplified editorial role.

Following Arnab Goswami’s departure from the Times Network, NewsX lost two senior editorial faces when Rahul Shivshankar and Hector Kenneth Kumar crossed over to Times Now shortly after to join as chief editor and managing editor, respectively. The appointment of an old hand like Mukherjea has surely come as a shot in the arm for NewsX following top-level editorial exits.
