Arup has enormous experience as a Presenter, Editor and Channel Launcher. He began his Television career with NDTV as a Presenter and Correspondent. As a member of the senior core team he covered elections, conflict reporting and anchored prime time shows. Next up, he was instrumental in the launch of Sahara Samay and helped in the formulation of content for 3 other regional channels.
At Sahara Samay, Arup anchored prime time shows and launched a very successful Cricket show called “Silly Point”, which set the tone for many other copycat shows. It had a high powered guest panel and focused more on the sport than on the day’s play. Arup returned for another stint recently at Sahara to recast its entire content strategy.
He was instrumental in the launch of Channel 7 within the shortest possible time frame as the promoters had a deadline to meet. It successfully took the show route. He followed it up with the launch of a blue chip English news channel called NewsX, which went into in-depth analysis. Arup specializes in all managerial aspects of broadcast television.
