The popular anchor Palki sharma resigned from Wion back in September. While it was obvious that Zee Media (parent company of Wion) and Palki were not on the same page which is why the anchor decided to move on, there was curiosity about knowing the actual reason and it looks like now we have come to know about it.
In a recent interview with ANI’s Smita Prakash, the anchor herself revealed that she was not happy with the creative direction and wanted Wion to cover stories about ?India in a more compelling manner.
“I was not enjoying what I was doing. I did not like the direction that we were taking. I think we were doing news curation and we had to move to the next step. And we had to tell the India’s story in a more compelling fashion. I think somewhere I did not see that happen beyond a point.” as stated by Palki Sharma Upadhyay during the interview which is available on Youtube.
Palki also stated some interesting facts that Wion was getting more viewership from outside countries (excluding the NRIs). There was no doubt that the channel had become synonmous with the anchor and fans after her Wion resignation believed that it would be hard for them to watch the channel now that Palki Sharma Upadhyay is no longer with the channel.
