CNN-News18 Mumbai bureau chief Smitha Nair resigns

In yet another development from CNN-News18, Mumbai bureau chief Smitha Nair quit the organisation recently. The reason behind her exit could not be ascertained. Nair spent 12 years with the organisation reporting on significant political developments and during the recently concluded election season, Nair was seen actively reporting from Goa and Mumbai.

“Yes I have moved on but cannot talk about my future plans at this point,” said Nair when contacted by exchange4media. Having anchored the show India 360 earlier, she forayed into journalism after graduating in economics and commerce. The month of March turned out to be quite an eventful one at CNN-News18 with several old timers bidding goodbye to the Mukesh Ambani-owned company.

On March 31, three editors served their last day at Network18. These included senior editor Karma Paljor, cricket editor Sanjeeb Mukherjea, and News18.com editor Roshan Tamang. Just like Nair, Paljor and Mukherjea were associated with Network18 for 12 years.

The exits, however, are unlikely to cause any major editorial disruption at the network. In an email to employees a few months back, CNN-News18’s managing editor Radhakrishnan Nair informed that the channel was working towards creating an integrated newsroom in Mumbai. “We have begun to re-imagine ourselves as a content provider across platforms and not just a television broadcaster,” Nair wrote. A newsroom of a similar kind is slated to be established in the Noida office next.

Last year, CNN-IBN was rebranded as CNN-News18 on April 18. Thereafter, its sister news channel IBN7 also underwent rebranding and became News18 India in November 2016. The company had reported that Network18 incurred Rs 3.3 crore as a one-time expense to re-launch IBN7.
