anchor Karan Thapar is no longer part of the India Today Group. The
award-winning journalist anchored his last newscast for TV Today Network on
April 14. At India Today Television, he used to anchor a program called ‘To The
Point’. Following the formal takeover of
Network18 by Reliance, Thapar ended his long-standing association with CNN-News18,
formerly CNN IBN, by joining India Today in April 2014. Thapar, who is the son
of former chief of army staff General Prem Nath Thapar, began his journalistic
innings far away from India as a journalist for The Times (UK) in Nigeria.
However, his association with print media was short lived as Thapar moved on to
work with London Weekend Television.
