Navika Kumar, Times Now



Navika is known for exposing lots of scams – both political and economic. Recently, she was in news because of a Tweet of Sushma Swaraj where Ms. Swaraj ridiculed Navika for teaching propriety.






Swaraj Vs. Navika

Actually, Swaraj was subtley referring to Navika not-so-clean image. She was featured in the Radia tape scandals where she was brokering some deals. In the conversation, it looked like she is quite close to Arun Jaitely. May be, Sushma Swaraj was referring to this ‘closeness’.


Times Now is running a high pitch campaign against Sushma Swaraj for her help to the tainted ‘Lalit Modi’. Navika Kumar is on the front with lots of news. Sushma Swaraj might have got irked with her reports.

  1. Navika, I have a lot of respect for your balanced handling of news or investigating reporting. What I cannot understand is that the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi claim that they were prevented from talking in Parliament. I think media should strongly point out that if at all it was Congress party who repeatedly and shamelessly disrupted Parliament. Let them not carry this charge with impunity. So far they have. Will you directly point this out the next time some one makes this baseless charge?

  3. Navika, I watch your 9 pm show with interest and respect. I have two suggestions: What is Secular? Be bold, as you demonstrably are, and call spade a spade. Call Muslims instead of Communal parties and call the bluff of other parties who call them secular and practice the worst. 2. Too much cross talk and interruptions take place. Our so called leaders and participants are uncouth, to say the least. Keep a switch to turn on only the person who is asked . Thus they know they can be seen and not heard. Let them raise their hand and you call whoever you want next. Let there be civility so we the viewers can hear fully and properly. I DO NOT THINK SHOUTING IS ADDING TO THE DEBATE, SOUND BITE IS NOT NECESSARY.
    You have shown knowledge, comprehension, ability to separate wheat from chaff. Can you improve quality of your debate? Dilip Shah

    1. Accoustic trauma is what I suffer from whenever I switch on the Times Now news channels and now the Republic ! While the topics they choose to debate on is interesting it is the noise levels that are unbearable. Moreover it's not great anchoring when you don't let your panelists speak, specially when they are not subscining to your view. It happens more often with the Pakistni guests, if you are not going yo listen to them , why call them ????? It all started with our narcissist friend Mr.Arnob Goswami , who just loves to listen to the music of his own voice. And that legacy continues with Navika, Anand Narashiman , Shivshankar, Tanvi and that entire lot !!!!
      Just stopped enjoying watching news these days !...if only they could do this a little more quietly....

  4. Novika should join BJP as she's acting like BJP's spoke person in dibate rather than anchor.
    Same on her

  5. No one against the anchors view is allowed to speak. Only a few who are regulars on the show, like bakshi, r s n, sampit etc are allowed to speak. If a quest who is of the same view as the anchor is rude to another guest, that is okay, navika will not interfere, and if the guests asks if this is the way she runs a debate, she says not to teach her how to run a debate!. Very low IQ news channel. Actually there are no news channels in india, just a bunch of jokers. Of course there is a choice not to watch it, but someone has to speak up against these jokers. Everything is a breaking news! After arnabs departure, every anchor seems to be trying to fill the make up for their loss

  6. Dear Rahul, Anand ,Navika, and Tanvi,
    I am a well wisher of Times now..all programmes are excellent, especially the debate. I have a small submission to u that, during the debate we can't hear anything because of the hallagulla of your participants.Please give them some time to express their ideas and don't interrupt them by you and also do not allow anybody to interept them. Very sad to say that nobody can listen your debate..... Please do the needful.
    With warm regards,
    Col Sathianadhan.

  7. Navika, please do not call , as panelists , people like Alimuddin Khan, Ganshyam Tiwari etc who go off the tangent and talk irrelevant things during a serious debate/ discussion.They seem to target PM Modi and BJP all the time.

  8. Navika kumar's anchoring is not in the interest of impartial journlisim.it is well known that all the tv channels have affiliation to one the other political party.you have to lookafter their interests but not at the cost ofquality of your journilism.navika should allow the speaker to finish his/her point and to interrupt in between of which she is in habit of
