Arnab Goswami announced the starting of his new venture in December, since then the entire country is eager to know about the new channel.
Arnab Goswami who is very critical about the corporate news channels has exposed many journalists and media houses after he quit TimesNow. In his recent interview, he had directly taken a dig at many journalists who took stand against India and supported the Pakistani terrorists.
He also was very critical about his ex-TimesNow boss who had given upper hand to those people who supported anti India stand. Arnab Goswami had also revealed that he was not allowed to enter his own studio in TimesNow office and wasn’t allowed to shoot his last show. It is said that the main reason for this was because Arnab Goswami questioned the Bollywood mafia who casted Pakistani actors in their movie even after a brutal terror attack on Indian soldiers in Uri.
Arnab Goswami who did not let go his principles, walked out of TimesNow and started his own venture called the Republic TV.
He has taken the best journalists, defence experts and analysts who have joined their hands with Arnab Goswami. He announced the joining of many people who are well known for their neutrality and Nationalism.

Apart from his core team, Arnab has also hired many young journalists who are away from the lutyen’s club and Delhi. He has made it a point that being Indian, Nationalist and neutral is very important for his venture. He always stressed that in his channel only journalists will decide the news and not politicians or corporate houses. There will be no link with politicians and no bollywood mafia will call and instruct what news to telecast and what questions to ask.
