He is synonymous to debates and is known for his popular catchphrase, “The nation wants to know”. The nation might loathe his overexcited ways of tackling issues, but at the same time, we have a bittersweet relationship with this man who somewhere changed the whole perception of media.
Arnab Goswami is a well-known name, who has revolutionized the way Indian media practices journalism. He is a person, who is isolated and loved at the same time. In the span of almost two decades, Arnab Goswami has already added a lot of feathers to his hat.
Considering Goswami’s long journey, a movie can be made on his entire life about how an army lad started to chase stories. He belongs to Guwahati, Assam and his father served the Indian Army and later on, joined Bhartiya Janata Party while his mother is an author.
After completing his schooling, Arnab took up BA (Hons.) in Sociology from the Hindu College of Delhi University. Then in 1994, he concluded his Masters in Social Anthropology from St. Antony’s College, Oxford University.
Arnab Goswami started his career in 1994 with ‘The Telegraph’ as a journalist. He worked there for less than a year then shifted to Delhi and joined NDTV 24X7 in TV News Broadcast. Later down the lane, Arnab joined NDTV’s core team as a news editor.
He was then approached by Times Now and after working at Times Now for 10 years, he resigned in 2016 and started his own TV channel, Republic TV.
Many a time, he has also been at the receiving end of people, who criticize him for his adamant way of speaking and not letting others speak on his debate shows. There have been many controversies around him but he has always been unapologetic about his way of journalism.
