New Delhi: Journalist Arnab Goswami has finally announced that he is coming up with his new venture and it’ll be called ‘Republic’.
Arnab Goswami had announced his resignation from Times Now earlier in November and since then, there were rumours that the journalist is expected to come back with a new concept. All the rumours, however, were put to rest when he told The New Minute about the same.
“My venture is called ‘Republic’; I seek the support of the people of India,” he was quoted as saying. Without giving out any further details, he said he’ll inform about the rest in a couple of weeks. Reportedly, the venture is expected to go live before Uttar Pradesh elections in 2017 and will be based out of Mumbai. The journalist is currently working on the team.
People on social media had a ball as soon as the news hit the Internet and many of them can’t stop tripping on the name. Joining the dots, many are suggesting that the venture might go live on January 26 because it’s called ‘Republic’. As expected, the jokes floating around have reference to Goswami’s favourite dialogue, ‘The nation wants to know’!
Goswami had resigned as Times Now’s editor-in-chief on November 1 and his last day was November 18. While resigning, he had said, “Independent media is going to thrive.” Let’s see what’s in store.
