Mumbai: Noted TV news personality Rahul Shivshankar, who joined Network18 as a consulting editor on Monday, has started his innings at the network with a column on news18.com.

The article titled, ‘Bharat’s Question for the G20: Are Some Global Concerns More Equal Than Others?’, explores the prioritisation of global concerns by the G20, emphasising that not all critical issues receive equal attention. The article calls for a more balanced approach, stressing the need to address various global concerns, including social and economic disparities, with equal urgency to achieve a fair and sustainable world order.

A news industry veteran with nearly three decades of experience in print and television journalism, Rahul cut his teeth in the profession as a reporter for The Times of India. He was one of the youngest leader-writers for the edit page of the newspaper. When Times Now launched, he was a part of its founding team. He then went on to become the face of the channel as well as its editor.

At Network18, he will add a strong digital dimension to his body of work and add further lustre to the star cast of anchors, reporters, editors, and commentators.

Rahul has received critical acclaim for his coverage of the 26/11 Mumbai Terror attacks. He was invited to contribute to an anthology of investigative narratives about the attacks published by Roli Books. He has also authored a soon-to-be-released book on the 2024 Elections, commissioned by Penguin Random House.
