A highly acclaimed journalist and TV News Anchor, a reputed Columnist, and a successful Author, Ashutosh was the Managing Editor of IBN7 from 2006 to 2014 when he gave it up to become a political activist and joined AAP. But soon got disenchanted with this naïve experiment and returned to journalism, his normal self, again with a new experiment in the form of satyahindi.com.
He is one of the most recognized and admired faces of Indian Television. He pioneered a style that has inspired a whole generation of news anchors. His show "Agenda with Ashutosh" on IBN7 was the most awaited TV debate show in the Hindi genre.
Even though television was a twenty-four-hour job, he took time out to write weekly columns for leading Hindi newspapers on relevant issues, and his collection of articles titled Mukhaute ka Rajdharm was published in the year 2015. He also authored three books. Anna-- 13 days that awakened India is a detailed account of Anna agitation for the Jan Lokpal in August 2011 and in 2015 he wrote The Crown prince, The Gladiator & The Hope -- Battle for Change.
In his latest book Hindu Rashtra published in 2019, Ashutosh employs his experience as a journalist as well as a politician to give an insider’s view of India’s changing political terrain. Relying on research, observations and personal experience, Hindu Rashtra takes a hard look at the political reality of India and what its future may hold.
Prior to joining IBN7, he had an 11 year-long stint in Aaj Tak. In his career spanning 29 years, he also worked for BITV, Dainik Hindustan, and Saptahik Hindustan and reported extensively all important events in both the print media as well as television with his unique analytical and incisive style.
