In two major editorial departures from Network18, senior journalists Sanjeeb Mukherjea and Roshan Tamang are moving out of the organization. Both gentlemen put in their papers a while back, with March 31 being their last working day. Ever since the resignation of Digvijay Singh Deo in November, Cricket Editor Mukherjea had been looking after the entire sports department.
Confirming the news of his exit, Mukherjea referred to himself as a “founder employee” who had “nothing to do with the foundation of the company” as such. “I’ve been here from day one. It’s been a long journey of 12 years,” said Mukherjea. He is reportedly in talks with a couple of networks wherein he is seeking a more enhanced editorial role.
Moving beyond just sports coverage, the Ramnath Goenka Award recipient is expected to host a primetime news bulletin in his upcoming avatar. For the record, he maintained he hasn’t yet completely made up his mind regarding the future.
On the other hand, Tamang also confirmed that he was on his way out of Network18. “I am going on a sabbatical for now,” said Tamang when approached by exchange4media.
After having re-joined Network18 as Editor - News18.com in April last year, Tamang’s second innings with the website lasted for close to one year. When the ownership of the network rested with Raghav Bahl, he spent four years from 2005 to 2009 strengthening the various online properties of Network18. Following another long stint with Times Internet as Vice President (Content & Convergence), Tamang became Product Head at Bahl’s new venture Quintillion Media in June 2014.
