Times now Yesterday NewsFor the first time Yesterday News
Almost five month after Arnab Goswami's departure, his replacement as editor-in-chief of Times Now, Rahul Shivshankar, talked about his plan for the canal, the reason why he didn't replace Goswami at Newshour, and how different his vision of news is from that of his forerunner. First of all, Times Now has its periodic discussion at 9 p.m. entitled "Newshour", which is now hosted by Navika Kumar, the managing editor, Politics.
Mr. Shivshankar has a 22-year journalism background that includes organizations such as The Times of India, BBC and most recently NewsX. That'?s his third assignment on Times Network. First was The Times of India and then Times Now. Mr Shivshankar said that his reasons for separating Times Now used to be the way the canal got away from the facts.
But Shivshankar is not worried that Aranb Goswami's Republic TV is about to start. Regardless of the size of the newsroom and how many new gamers can be added, the kind of advertising the Republic has received - Republic and Times Now comparison - will certainly take place.
The way the processes behind the scenes have sometimes resulted in awkward debates.
Yesterday, when the India crash squad defeated Australia in the semi-finals of the 2015 World Cup, Times Now news station added the Twitter hash day #ShamedinSydney to the ongoing ticker that the "tame" squad abandoned India. "The trick of the canal went quickly backwards as furious folks on-line were defending the squad and also creating the hash tag #ShameOnTimesNow to direct their anger at the canal.
Rahul Bhatia introduced Arnab Goswami, the editor-in-chief of the station, in our December 2012 edition and examined how the station works. Bhatia notes in this extract from this play that Times Now's possession of velocity has often resulted in expensive inaccuracies. Goswami's nine o'clock presence every evening hides the fact that his part in the news in India is much bigger and more penetrating than his passionate announcements during Newshour would suggest.
"Said the editors, he understood TV more than news." "You know, he knows what a good TV is. "Under Goswami's supervision, reporter were ordered to slide microphone on their respondents and ask for responses because it was created for vibrant TV. Door steps are not new, but no one has done it before in India," said Rahul Shivshankar, who until 2010 was Goswami's second-in-command.
Goswami, in a play last year released in Outlook, remembered his early years as a TV journalist when he was "thrilled to put my microphone in the faces of the Who's Who of India policy " when they appeared from a court room where Jain hawala's fraud was investigated in 1996. Goswami made the issues themselves the most important events by asking issues and instructing his correspondents to ask them.
" Times Now's need to ask question is so strongly anchored that a journalist recently screamed an inquiry at the shut window of a minister's driving past automobile before turning to the cameras to declare that the secretary had not answered. Mr. Goswami ruled that Times Now cinematographers should be referred to as videographers, and he enabled them to make choices at life shows - reversing the traditionally close relationships between photographers and cinematographers.
"In Times Now, reporter are described as Klangbiss collectors," said a former office head of Mumbai. "You know, when a tale happens. "If an OB truck were not nearby, reporter would exit the scenes to manually supply the film material so that the channel's videographers could continue to film.
However, the broadcaster's stress on the reduction of "bureaucratic delays" and the rapid spread of news has its price. A reporter said that the canal had few built-in filter to avoid mistakes going on broadcasts. There was a tale this noon of a fraud with a relief box office in which a number of magistrates were involved unfolding in the net, and for about 15 seconds Times Now transmitted the name of a magistrate, PK Samanta, along with what they thought was a photograph of him.
Today Goswami later explained to India that it was "a computer-generated flaw that did not require a manual port.
