Times NOW Senior Editor Rupali Mehra quits

Primetime news anchor and Senior Editor of Times Now, Rupali Mehra has resigned after more than nine years with the channel.

Rupali Mehra was part of the core startup team handpicked by Times Now's Editor-in-Chief, Arnab Goswami.

In her near decade stint with Times Now, which has consistently topped the ratings as India’s No. 1 English news channel, Rupali Mehra held several senior editorial positions.

She's been a regular face on the channel’s daily prime time news and the 9 pm news report on weekends.

Confirming the development Rupali Mehra said, “A small team of us started Times Now with literally a paper & pen and lot of ideas. I feel proud to have seen the channel take shape and grow into an independent, fearless entity that has changed the face of television news in India. With the channel now running on its own steam, it is time for me to take up a fresh challenge.”

Sources at Times Now confirmed that Mehra has put in her papers.

Prior to joining the start up team at Times Now, Mehra worked with several leading media companies like NDTV and Reuters. She was also one of the early movers into the digital content space having worked with an American telecommunications company in setting up community news portals in India in 1999.

The senior journalist covered and reported the 26/11 terror attacks on Taj Hotel live for 72 hours. Times Now’s coverage of the terror attacks is seen as a turning point for Indian television live news reporting.

She has won several awards for her documentaries at national and international competitions, including the Commonwealth Vision Award and the Indian Television award. Her documentary on the 2006 Mumbai train blasts made it to the New York Film festival’s final list.

Rupali Mehra, however, declined from revealing her next move. “You will hear about it soon enough,” she said.
