Sources said that Arnab Goswami announced his resignation at an editorial meeting. Goswami resigned from the post as he wanted to start something on his own, said sources. The channel, however, is still showing teasers of Newshours with Arnab.
Goswami was recently also given “Y category” security cover from the government after the Intelligence Bureau perceived a threat to his life from “Pakistan based terrorists groups”. The move to provide security cover to a journalist was questioned and criticised by many, including former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju.

Goswami’s brand of journalism has often come under flak, especially the daily NewsHour. However, it should be kept in mind that the brand Times Now and brand Goswami are almost synonymous. Like this Caravan article points out, “Discussions about Times Now are invariably discussions about Goswami, whose abrasive moderation every weeknight has inspired angst-ridden open letters, a stream of parodies, and even standup comedy routines.”
