Know Who Replaced Arnab Goswami on TimesNow and How Twitter Reacted!

There was hell lot of speculation after Arnab resigned from TimesNow, who can fill his spot? Who has the courage, the aggressive attitude and mostly the spine to question the most powerful people of India.  Who could engage people with the same tone, same shouting and same power filled way?

Some people had even guessed that Rajdeep Sardesai to replace Arnab, but given his track record of being extremely Anti Modi and Pro Congress stand he became very controversial. He had even supported the Anti National stand of people like Kanhaiya Kumar in JNU. This earned him a very bad name. For a channel like TimesNow which earned a Nationalist reputation because of Arnab Goswami’s strong message against Anti Nationals and pseudo liberals hiring Rajdeep would have been disastrous.

Anyways, the mystery is over! Rahul Shivashankar of the NewsX will be the new chief editor of TimesNow. The man who was heading NewsX now has a bigger role to play in TimeNow. Chandni Ahlawat Dabas the executive producer of NewsX announced in the social media that Rahul Shivashankar will be now heading the TimesNow as chief editor.

Rahul Shivshankar in NewsX has proven to be a neutral and pro nationalist person who has shown the courage to question few powerful people on the show. In the present scenario looks he was the best bet for TimesNow.

Twitter which is the first to react on any developments in country showed varied responses on the newly appointed chief editor of TimesNow.
