Shiv Aroor to scale up own website after relinquishing full-time role at India Today

Shiv Aroor has relinquished full-time editorial responsibilities at India Today Television after spending a decade with the broadcaster. Rumours of his impending exit had been doing the rounds since December but were given finality only in March-end. From now onwards, Aroor will be the Editor-in-Chief of Livefist, a portal dedicated to military and strategic affairs, which he founded in 2007.

Though Aroor will continue to be associated with India Today Television, his main focus will be on scaling up Livefist, which has so far remained popular mainly among defence followers as a blog. Very often seen alongside India Today’s Executive Editor Gaurav Sawant, Aroor invested much of his time at India Today covering security issues.

A post-graduate in the discipline of international journalism from Cardiff University, Aroor will soon come out with his first novel titled ‘Operation Jinnah: Indian soldiers on enemy soil’ which has been published by Juggernaut Books.  Exchange4media tried reaching out to Aroor to know more about his future plans but he did not respond to our calls.
