Goswami has led TIMES NOW to leadership in less than a year of launching the channel in 2006. Since 2007, he has maintained and increased the dominance of TIMES NOW in the Number 1 slot for 8 consecutive years. His 9 pm “The Newshour” is the last word in appointment viewing on Indian television, commanding over 70% share of the audience and unmatched viewer loyalty for the last 8 years. The interview based “Frankly Speaking with Arnab” is, both in terms of viewership and impact, today the most followed interview on television, making headlines every week. As Editor in Chief of TIMES NOW, he has revolutionised news coverage, anchoring for 100 hours during the 26/11 attack, spearheading the greatest exposes against corruption starting with the CWG scam, and including the 2G scam, the Kargil for Profit scam and others in 2010-11, the coverage of the Anna agitation, and path breaking interviews with Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi in 2014 that set the news agenda in the National Election. In State Elections since 2010, and the General Election of 2014, Goswami introduced a new form of statistical analysis on elections, with brand new psephological tools combined with a new level of graphical representation, completely transforming election coverage; wielding maximum viewers in every election for the last five years. Goswami’s annual Union Budget telecast, with a focus on macro- economic and macro political trends and impact, has been the leader in the combined business+news channels pack for the last 5 years. A great believer in Digital Media, he has launched collaborations with Twitter and Facebook, with TIMES NOW chosen to be among the 5 partners worldwide for the launch of Twitter video this year, with the channel overtaking in less than a year the social media presence of any other Indian channel operating on social media.

Goswami is a post graduate in Social Anthropology from Oxford University, and has been a visiting fellow at Cambridge University’s Department of International Relations. He has been invited to speak on Indian media at Oxford, Cambridge, Kings College London and most recently the House of Lords. In 2001, his book “Combating terrorism” was quoted in debates in parliament on the drafting of an anti terror law. He has been published in several international journals, on geo political trends in India and the region.
