TOP SECRET: Who is that TV anchor?

The Hoot reports that during a recent recording of a panel discussion on reservation for an English news channel, a pro-reservation panellist turned to the big TV honcho anchor and said: “Isn’t it amazing that someone like you who came out of St Stephen’s with pass marks and got rejected by UPSC after failing the exams, has reached the heights you have? Now isn’t that because of the quota of the old boy school network?” Which channel, and who is the anchor?
