Journalist Arnab Goswami has revealed how he was not allowed to enter his own studio in Times now on what was his last day in office.
Speaking to News 24’s Manak Gupta in a special event, an emotional Goswami said, “Two days before I left Times Now, I was told you can’t do the program. 18th November was my last day, I was not allowed to enter my own studio. The studio I built. I was stopped….I was very upset. When you build an institution and are not allowed to enter your own studio you feel sad. It hurts you somewhere.”
Janta Ka Reporter had exclusively reported the news of Goswami’s shock resignation from Times now on 1 November.
We had also exclusively reported how his bosses had stopped him from hosting a special mega show on his last day.
What Goswami is saying is now is a mere confirmation of our report published four months ago.
Arnab was reportedly keen to invite big names of politics, sports and entertainment on his planned ‘farewell’ edition of News Hour, but the channel’s CEO, MK Anand, abruptly told staff on 17 November that the anchor would be presenting his last debate show on 18 November.
Anand also reportedly added that the last episode of News Hour with Arnab will be just like any other debate shows he had presented in the past.
In mid December, the former editor-in-chief of Times Now had announced his intention to launch his next venture Republic.
