Republic TV's Arnab Goswami elected as governing board president by NBF


Daijiworld Media Network – New Delhi

New Delhi, Dec 9: Editor-in-chief of Republic TV, Arnab Goswami, has been elected as president of News Broadcasters Federation (NBF) governing board.

NBF, the body of 78 news channels in 14 languages, representing broadcasters from 25 states, met on Saturday to finalise modalities of a self-regulatory organization - News Broadcasters Federation Authority - to bring in transparent self-regulation on content, a statement said.

It said the members unanimously elected Arnab Goswami, Managing Director and EIC of Republic TV, as the new President of NBF''s Governing Board.

"I am grateful for the trust and confidence shown in me by the largest ever group of broadcasters in India. NBF is a game changer and its incredible how so many channel owners and top executives have come together so quickly to make NBF happen," Goswami said on being elected as the President of NBF.

"For far too long a clutch of Delhi-based channels have falsely claimed to represent Indian broadcasting. NBF will change that, for good," he said.

The members also elected four vice-presidents, namely Jagi Mangat Panda, co-founder of Ortel Communications; Shankar Bala of Fourth Dimension Media, Sanjive Narain, Chairman and Managing Director of Prag News, and Kartikeya Sharma of ITV Network, who will be part of the governing board.

The founder members of the NBF include Republic Media Network (Republic TV and Republic Bharat), Puthiyathalaimurai (Tamil Nadu) and V6 News (Telangana), Orissa TV (Orissa), IBC24 (MP and Chhattisgarh), TV9 Bharatvarsh, Newslive and Northeast Live (Assam and Northeast), First India News (Rajasthan), Kolkata TV (West Bengal), CVR News (AP and Telangana), Polimer News (Tamil Nadu), among others.

    Media under then clutches of central govt. He is given berth cuz co - founder of this channel Rajiv Chandrasheker is Member of Parliament from BJP. This is the advantage if anyone becomes puppet of the govt.

    So far, hardly anyone was watching Republic channel because there is only one man barking throughout the debate. Others are made to shut their mouth.
    Now there is every possibility of all barking channels coming together and barking praises to favoured party. Invitees from other parties are normally made to shut their mouth by shouting.
    It is surprising that some people still like shouting channel.

    It is indeed a sad and black day for Indian journalism. But I am not surprised at all. He was due for a plum position because he has been licking the government's shoes for a very long time now. Ache din for Arnab.
