Faye D’Souza, the Executive Editor of Mirror Now, has decided to step down from her post. She will be moving away from the daily management duties of the channel. However, according to her post, she will “continue to be associated with the Times Network, creating and presenting flagship shows and IPs.”
“I thank the management of Times Network for their support in creating a bold voice with Mirror Now,” D’Souza added in her post on Twitter. “I also plan to work on developing new content for the youth of India across platforms in my independent capacity.”
After media reports of her resignation started to circulate, D’Souza received several messages asking for her reinstatement. A petition started to make the rounds which garnered about 3,200 signatures.
“I am humbled and deeply touched by all the messages and the support I have received over the last 24 hours,” she noted in her statement on Twitter.
In a statement announcing the changes in the leadership, Times Network ensured that the audience knew that D’Souza would continue her association with the group and Mirror Now, in a different capacity.
“Having played a pivotal role in establishing a strong position for Mirror Now, Faye moves away from managing daily operations of the brand and will now be responsible for creating and presenting flagship shows on Mirror Now in addition to steering new shows, IPs and ground events for the Network,” the Times Network added.
Before joining Mirror Now, which was launched in April 2017, D’Souza was the anchor and editor at the group’s business news channel ET from October 2008. Her career began with CNBC TV18 as a features producer. In October 2008, she was the South India bureau chief when she quit after working with ET for about four years.
