Rahul Shivshankar joins Times Now as Chief Editor & SVP

Almost four weeks after he quit News X, Rahul Shivshankar has officially joined Times Now. The former Editor-in-Chief of News X updated his Twitter bio to Chief Editor & Senior Vice President, Times Now.

Dubbed as “Arnab Lite” by Newslaundry’s CEO Abhinandan Sekhri, this will be Shivshankar’s third run with Times Group. He has been previously associated with both their flagship brands i.e. Times of India and Times Now.



At Times Now, Shivshankar will shoulder the mighty responsibility of replacing Arnab Goswami who helped establish the channel. Goswami gained popularity as well as garnering critics for his controversial style through his debate show ‘The Newshour’.

Shivshankar is expected to present The Newshour and continue with the supposedly ‘nationalistic’ positions that Goswami took on subjects concerning national security.
