Rahul Kanwal is one of India's most decorated journalists and the News Director of the country's largest media organisation - India Today Group. He leads news gathering and operations for the network. Rahul manages a team of 500+ reporters spread across India and in key global cities. The stories he helps curate are featured across 5 television channels and 20 digital platforms, with a cumulative reach of a staggering 489 million consumers. Rahul is the host of India Today's flagship prime-time broadcast, Newstrack and the highly popular weekend interview show, Jab We Met.
Rahul was born on 14 September, 1980 in Deolali, Maharashtra. He studied Journalism at Delhi University.
Rahul's USP is as an intrapreneur, who specialises in launching disruptive new editorial products backed by a strong managerial ability to see through the execution of these innovative ideas. His most recent successes were during the Indian general elections that concluded in May 2019. The editorial projects that he incubated at India Today became the envy of newsrooms across the country. Rahul built a Data Intelligence Unit, which did cutting-edge data deep dives into election stories and trends. He also launched the Anti-Fake News War-Room (AFWA) which was designed to take on the menace of fake news. Apart from this, he set up an Open Source Intelligence Desk (OSINT) which used the latest digital forensics tools to power investigative journalism.
Rahul is the winner of seven Exchange4media News Broadcasting Awards, two Indian Television Academy Awards and four News Television Awards. He has powered some of the most hard-hitting investigative stories to emerge from India over the past decade. The exposes unearthed by Rahul and his team of investigative reporters have led to public functionaries having to resign and triggered significant policy changes.
At a time when Indian journalism has become sharply polarised along political, religious and ideological lines, Rahul believes in the need to remain non-aligned and present both sides of the story rather than push only side of the argument.
Rahul studied Journalism at Delhi University. He's a Chevening scholar and has done a programme in International Broadcast Journalism from Cardiff University. He also won a Rory Peck Trust grant for a course in Hostile Environment Journalism.
Rahul is a fitness enthusiast and loves to play racquet sports. He gets his adrenalin rush from white water kayaking and skiing. When not obsessing over the day's news, Rahul loves to read non-fiction books and spend time with his family.SHOW LESS
