Popular news anchor and face of television news channel, Times Now, Arnab Goswami has resigned as the editor-in-chief of the channel, according to various media reports and sources in The Times Group.
The senior journalist, who has become a household name for his high-pitched debates in the show, News Hour, is also a popular target on social media. Ergo, his resignation was sure to make no less noise than his popular TV show.
From observing a one-minute noise as a tribute to the anchor, to lamenting the lack of it in the channel post his resignation, the twitterati were ready with the sharpest quips as ever when the news broke out on social media. Here are our picks:
End of an era with Arnab quitting Times Now. I shall observe one minute noise to mark the occasion.
