The Network 18 group was originally owned by Raghav Bahl. In January 2012, the group received an investment from Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries through a rights issue of up to 2,700 crore.[2]

History

In May 2013, the news group was merged with the Indian edition of Forbes India whose four top editorial heads including editor in chief Indrajit Gupta were dismissed.[3][4] The event led to a media furor.[5] Thereafter on 31 May 2013, Firstpost took over a satirical website Fakingnews.com for an undisclosed amount.[6]

As of April 2020, Jaideep Giridhar is the executive editor of Firstpost in Mumbai, while Sanjay Singh is the deputy executive editor.[7]
