NBF is India’s largest association of several news channels and it comprises of 78 news channels in 14 languages from 25 states.
The NBF members unanimously elected Goswami as the president of the governing board on Saturday.
Goswami said that he was deeply grateful for the trust and confidence showed towards him by the largest ever group of broadcasters in India.
“NBF is a game-changer and its incredible how so many channel owners and top executives have come together so quickly to make NBF happen,” he said.
“For far too long a clutch of Delhi-based channels have falsely claimed to represent Indian broadcasting, but the NBF will change that for good,” he added.
The NBF was formed in July this year and comprises of both national and regional news broadcasters.
