Reporters Without Orders Ep 269: Subhash Chandra’s rise and eventual fall

A reporters’ podcast about what made news and what shouldn’t have.

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week, host Akanksha Kumar is joined by Newslaundry’s Tanishka Sodhi. 

Tanishka’s story of the week was a deep-dive report on the journey of media mogul and Zee group founder Subhash Chandra Goenka. In the conversation, Tanishka revisits her excursion of gathering credible, exhaustive information on Mr Chandra and how he refused to speak to her directly as it wasn’t a “completely positive story”. 

Tanishka goes on to talk about the aspects of Mr Chandra’s character that led to his rise and an eventual fall from grace. She also spotlights his ventures that contributed to his debacle. “He is ambitious and loves a new challenge, but his impatience is the key factor in his downfall,” she says.
